Stayed here in the 12 bed female dorm for 2 nights. Staff were friendly and helpful, helped us to plan out what we would do whilst staying here and how to get there. The rooms were ok, the pods were reasonably comfortable and the personal locker was good. There was limited space to keep bigger bags, a locker was provided... More

It was the first time I had to stay in hostel. So for me it was little bit hard to stay with another people in the room. But the place has very good atmosphere, staff is very friendly, there are nice breakfast, the place you sleep is clean but bathrooms should be clean more often.

B88 was really clean, modern and unique. The beds are big and it feels very private as it's like a capsule. The best was the lockers in the capsule had a plug inside for charging while knowing your stuff are safe. There's a big common area which was great for meeting other travellers. The breakfast was great with free toast... More

I stayed in the 16 bed dorm for 4 nights. The dorm was quite small but the pod like beds were good. Inside the pod there was a small locker to put valuables and then at the bottom or side of each pod there is a bigger locker that you can put your bag. You don't need your own lock... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and have no complaints at all about the hostel. It was super clean, spacious communal area with free tea/coffee/water all day. Wifi was speedy, tv with lots of channels and a library of DVDs. Rooms are a little cramped but you have large luggage lockers, bed lamp and even a small cupboard in your bed... More
