Even I travelled alone but I never feel lonely when I stayed at hostels. This place is well-maintained, clean and comfortable, dorm bed quite big compare with the others i used to... More

There's a pub crawl three nights out of the week which is a plus if you're lookin for the party. I would recommended if your looking for a... More
