Bob's is in a really great location in walking distance of many museums, shops, eating establishments and other attractions.
Our room was clean and the shared toilet and showers on our floor were cleaned daily and in good condition.
I found the bed comfortable, but very short and very narrow. The bunks had no ladders or guardrails either.
In terms of a place to sleep and shower, it is a good venue in a fantastic location and I did enjoy my stay there.
However, what my girlfriend and I didn't realise when we booked was that the smoker-friendly lobby was in fact the hostel's only common area and only place with wi-fi. This meant that everything smelled of marijuana (yes, that includes the ginger cat who likes to visit from time to time) so bear this in mind if you aren't particularly fond of the smell.
I'd recommend this as a great place to stay if you're out to party, but it's not really a place suited to couples looking to explore the city.
