and so started 4 nights (well 3 I had one night slightly off the beer) of pub crawls and hilarious entertainment and coming back in daylight.
The hostel was well, a hostel, it was clean the room was fine with plenty of room and the bed was pretty comfy, pretty much what you'd expect for a hostel, the bathrooms and showers were fine too, though I did end up with a cold shower when I got up way too late after a 5am bed time.
The staff in the hostel were brilliant, in particular Vikki who made me feel welcome right from the very start, sorting out a free beer, introducing me to people already in the bar and organising the pub crawls.
That is where I though the hostel really excelled, giving you something to do. The pub crawls were amazing and such good fun, some of it's a bit sketchy but they were long days. There were walking tours of the Old Town run by local students who gave a good account of the place, and a trip out to a police shooting range which was a hell of an experience if a little scary!!
All in all I can't recommend the place highly enough, I will certainly be planning on staying there again in the future!!
