Helpful staff, but don't expect luxury, it is a hostel and you get, what you paid for. Stayed here two times, never had any problems. No breakfast, but there are plenty places near by. Towels not provided, you can rent one, it only costs £1

I've stayed in heaps of hostels so I know what to expect. But this one was probably the dirtiest/most uncomfortable one I've had to stay in. Staff were nice enough but everything else was below av. Weird odour in the rooms. Bathrooms/showers were gross. Room was dirty. Bed was average with average linen and a sliver of a pillow. Noise... More

We stayed here for a night and that truly was enough. The guys on reception are very pleasant and helpful and this is a hostel too, We've never stayed in a hostel and won't be staying here again, the beds are just so uncomfortable. We did have a room on our own with a shower and toilet, so I suppose... More

I know this is a hostel and you can't expect a great standard, but this place is disgusting and unhygienic. First of all the reception: check in/out was quick and staff were ok but the reception area behind the desk was a complete mess, with piles of bed sheets and whatnot on the floor. Our room was in the "seafront"... More

I had the worse service experience of my life at this hostel. I booked my stay on booking.com it advertised it as a room with a sea view and two single beds. I received a room with bunks and a alley view. I was told that rooms with a view only came in dorm rooms. I told the checkin agent... More

Stayed here for a cheap booze weekend. The staff were very helpful and welcoming, its seconds away from the beach and minutes from the lanes. The rooms and washroom aren't great, uncomfortable beds and not the cleanest but could of been hell of a lot worse! Basically if you want leisure then get your hand back in your pocket, if... More

We booked this hostel for a school trip with 29 children aged 13-14. When we arrived check in was quick and easy and the staff were very welcoming. However, the children were utterly horrified at the state of their rooms and it was easy to see why. The rooms were dirty, the walls were stained and I would advise anyone... More

I had been in this hostel many times and always a huge welcome from the staff. Fair price and the best location. You are just 1 minutes from the beach and 3 from the lanes. Excellent. I will come back always.

Ok, first the good points: - Check in was quick - View was nice (more on that below) Now for the bad points. - Hostel is located above a 24 hour cafe, which attracts everybody post-bar/club. It's noisy throughout the night, and the window really doesnt offer much sound insulation. Ear plugs or an elephant sedative are essential if you... More
