This hostel is something a little different!
I quite liked having to leave my shoes by the front door in the p[orch. I couldn't detect a smell of anyones bad fee or shoes and it also kept the hostel clean. It was a mare finding your shoes in the morning though unless you can remember where you left them.
The common area is great! Whilst on our stay in October we watched the tv with a few americans, a canadian, 2 kiwis amongst others. You are allowed to drink up to a certain time ( i think its 12) and if you interact with people as they walk in then they are more likely to sit and chat.
The rooms arent that great and the beds a little squeaky. The pillows arent anything great but i simply put a sweatshirt next/under my pillow and that helped a lot. The bathrooms are easy to get to and clean with plenty of room to move about in. The kitchen on the top floor is small but you could make a meal no problem with ample storage in the fridge and cupboards. The terrace is great especially with the free bbq on a sunday night where there is usually more food than anyone can stomach! The shop next door is ideal even if it smells funky and the staff are a great help!
Location was fine for us as we were all 22 but some may take transport and theres plenty to do in the city!
Would definitely stay here again!
