Terrible! When we arrived the woman told us there was no room for us even though we had paid. I got in contact with another hostel and found a room for £77 (we had already paid £50 for this hostel). We asked the woman on reception Andrea if they would make up the £27 difference as it was their fault,... More

I made sure I cancelled my room weeks in advance, and received confirmation the cancellation was free. Only to find out £30 had been taken from my account, when I called the reception to enquire the issue she was rude, abrupt and had no clue what I was on about. She assured me I hadn't been charged and hung up... More

I created an account on this site just to say how awful this place was. We arrived in darkness up a steep hill to an empty reception. The girl on reception didn't understand our booking. My friend who asked for a double got a room with 2 single beds and a bunk, not fully painted walls for decoration. No issue,... More

We made a reservation to stay at this hostel about a month in advance. When we arrived, they informed us they had cancelled our reservation! They said we "should have" received an email, but we didn't. Apparently they double book rooms in the event one party doesn't show up, they still have a booking!!! Well, that's rubbish when both parties... More

An all round horrible and scary experience. I showed up at this dirty unkempt house to find that my room had been 'cancelled'. The impolite woman at the desk gave absolutely no reason other than that they were 'full', despite the fact I had booked the room months in advance on Booking.com. She lied about sending me a message about... More

The place is dirty smelly and loud. The person who was running never shut up. He would yell on his phone and pace back and forth past the rooms. We stayed four days and he would do this almost constantly and at all hours. He was insane. The place itself is dirty and disgusting with an awful small kitchen

A simple, nice enough hostel 20-25 minutes walk from the city centre. Breakfast was simple - cereal, toast, tea and coffee - available all day. Rooms nice enough, but could hear conversations in the kitchen from the room - not a problem through the week but may be a problem on busier nights. Main issue was cleanliness - bathrooms weren't...

The hostel is in a nice and tranquil place, not far away from the city centre. Yet, my experience was not as expected. I had booked a single room for two nights, but upon arrival I was told that there had been overbooking and a couple would arrive on the next day, so the single, with double bed, was for... More

Looks OK from the outside, got checked in straight away which was great, friendly guy who helped us. But my room was awful (downstairs double, No2) huge patches of damp on the back walls which also meant the room stank of damp. Stains/marks on the sheets, obviously old, but worst of all my pillow smelt of dirty hair! No fresh... More
