Regent Flashpackers is in a building without much character and rooms are more or less typical of the Back-Packer / Hostels where we stayed but barren of furniture. Having a table and some chairs in the room would have helped. The bathrooms (down the hall) were adequate but might have been crowded when all rooms were full. The kitchen also... More

I found the rooms in Regent Fkashpackers to be a bit of a letdown. I expected them to be quite basic, however as I arrived in winter, I was surprised that the heating systems was one pipe running through the room. There was two of us in the room, which was made for five, so we luckily had the ability... More

However, the woman who ended up showing us around was super nice and... More

Rooms were spacious, clean and modern. Living room and kitchen also clean and modern. Great sleep and bunkbeds where you don't hit your head!

They told us abou all of the amazing places to visit and amazing bars to stop in to. As soon as we arrived they were waiting at the front door with huge smiles. Our room and all of... More

Good location in centre of town for restaurants etc. Place advertises itself as a flashpackers with 'smart urban' rooms. That is going a bit far. For a hostel the rooms are clean, with bedding and towels, but are a little tired. No sinks in room and only 2 showers and toilets for each gender. Bathrooms could have been scrubbed clean... More
