I spent five days at this hostel in March of 15. The hostel is very well run with an extremely helpful, friendly staff that includes Alice who not only helped me figure out some bus routes but also cooks a mean sauce for pasta night. Everything was super clean. The kitchen is large and they have everything you need to... More

This place has great nightly events and friendly staff. Unfortunately the 16 man rooms were very cramped, stuffy and sweaty so i advise getting one of the private or group rooms if you can. Whilst we were there the plumbing had problems meaning there was one shower and one toilet downstairs available to male guests (for some reasons the ladies... More
