We stayed here for one night and were very impressed. The hostel is clean and in a good location, and is good value considering that it includes breakfast. It also has good communal facilities and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious.

I stayed here in summer for 3 nights and even when it was full I could get a decent night's sleep. I stayed in a room on the 3rd floor. The facilities are basic but clean and the wifi is fast. Staff are great and can organize tours for you easily.

We travelled through Europe this summer so have stayed in many hostels and are aware that they may not be the most peaceful/cleanest places, but other hostels we stayed in for similar/less money were of a much better quality then what we experienced here. We checked into our room at 2pm which is fine as this was stated on the... More

We stayed at this hostel for 1 night only however we were pleased to find it was very clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and it was really central (everything within walking distance). Breakfast was also pretty good for the hotel, and there is a nice bar downstairs which could be used for socialising

Okay, so I've stayed in several hostels throughout my recent trip to Europe but this was by far the worst. The staff were reasonably friendly and showed us to our room...on further inspection we found: - The floor hadn't been cleaned and was full of dust etc - A half drunk can of red bull inside the wardrobe along with...

The outside of the hostel is very misleading, as it is down a small alley way covered in graffiti. However, on arrival I found that the staff were extremely friendly and helpful in every way. They informed us on trips, walking tours and great pub crawls. The rooms were very clean, but very old fashioned in layout and choice of... More

I stayed here for 2 nights in a 4 female dorm with one other friend and two strangers. I felt safe, comfortable and I was able to lock my stuff in a locker under the bed. The staff was awesome and there 24-hrs. They were very helpful and gave us recommendations and helped book a tour. There's a full kitchen... More
