Really enjoyed our star at the high life hostel - rooms are big and very clean with tasteful decor. Very helpful - took our postcards to send, do your washing for 20p equiv, only negative would be noise but free earplugs are provided. Would 10/10 recommend and come back!

I booked a twin room with a garden view and added the update that double bed will be required.The staff didn't see my note, but well this may happen. But the worst thing was a terrace. In the photos it looks very well, but believe me, it looks nothing like this. It was not cleaned, looked nothing like in the... More

It's always a pleasure to review a good hostel. We had a double room with a shower & toilet privately. No problems- lovely sized room, hot & powerful shower. The lady helped me use the washing machine (5pln with the powder included!! Bargain). Very chic decoration. Tea & food making facilities were great. Easy to dry my clothes too. Felt... More

I have to say I was a little apprehensive of staying in a hostel instead of a hotel, on arrival we found it brilliant, nice rooms, we had a private bathroom and balcony, staff very helpful. Minutes from the main sq, a great way to stay away cheap. Stairs up a little tricky after visiting the vodka bar 😂

High life hostel was hands down the nicest hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were beyond helpful and even kept our luggage for a night we were not even staying there. There is everything you need and more. Book it, dont question it.

My girlfriend and I stayed 5 days in a double room with private bathroom. The room was quite well equipped, very confortable and clean, very good position: 5 minutes walking from the center. We recommend it!

Stayed here with 10 other guys on a stag doo, were in rooms of 2 and 3. The main 2 bed room was modern with fridge, tv etc but other rooms very basic. And one room only had 1x double for 2 men to stay in so check ahead for sleeping arrangements depending on the mix of group. Was handy... More
