Ok, just to be clear, this hostel isn't anything amazing, it's not even close to amazing... - weird smell in the room - so many stairs - definitely couldn't stay there for more than a few nights BUT, - the location is so central, 5 min walk to the famous Bulldog cafe - cheap considering the location - I was...

Location is amazing! If you're going there to party and you don't care about a good night of sleep, that's the place to stay! But if you want peace, don't go there. It's too loud in the night. Bed was good, staff very nice, lockers ok also. I enjoyed my stay there.

While I understand the old adage "you get what you pay for", after travelling solo and staying in hostels multiple times I can still say that I've stayed in considerably better hostels than this one. The hostel's bathroom is the most strange design I've ever seen - the toilet is essentially in a "wet room" of sorts, so you can...

Hostel staff were really helpful and location was amazingly convenient. However could not stay here more than a couple of days, dorm rooms were tiny with no real common room or way to socialise. Very much just a bed for the night; if someone in your dorm was sleeping (which seemed to be all the time) you had nowhere to...

This is a very average hostel. Me and a friend stayed in an 8 bed dorm. It was literally just somewhere to sleep, The stairs were incredibly steep but manageable. The rooms were a little small, but it had an ensuite which was good and there were 2 showers to our room which was very helpful. The staff that we...

Bookes to stay in a 8 bed mixed dorm with 3 other friends, for 3 nights and went in with very low expectations (based on other reviews) but overall very suprised at the hostel. When we arrived at the hostel, it started on a bit of a damper as we explained we would be arriving at 11am but when we...

The locked, private room of me and my three other traveling companions was broken into, then the lockers pried open and 1200 euros (all that we four had) stolen from us. The desk worker then tried to convince us not to call the police, but we did anyway Then the manager lied to an OFFICER OF THE LAW, and told...

We stayed at the hostel last summer and it was really better than we expected. The location was so good because it was near to the places we wanted to visit. We only had a problem finding the hostel on our first day.

Stayed here for 4 nights in a 6 bed dorm, and judging by the reviews I was expecting a lot worse than I got! We were all pleasantly surprised, had our own little balcony! We went in a group of 3, and the staff were all nice, especially the poor guy who works the overnight shift! You can come and...
