The worst place I have ever seen. Rude staff. Dirty walls and carpets. Stained pillows beds and sheets. Couldn't stay one night and no refund given after paying for a full week This place should be closed down.

Room and bathrooms were clean but maybe because the hostel was almost empty... Bar is just downstairs and it's very loud in the evenings/nights (but... More

We stayed over Xmas in a private room and it was Really expensive, had poor levels of cleanliness. Rubbish wifi. Dirty showers. Average service from staff, and the room was really depressing. I wouldn't wish this place on anyone.
