Decent Hostel with a large kitchen in the basement. Not too far of a walk to old town. Neat second floor outdoor patio / smoking area. You can get a single room if you prefer. Very close to the Harbor and Ferry.

Hostel occupies a spacious old building that was under refurbishment when I spent one night there. Place is simple and clean. Twin bedroom with private toilet and... More

The room was very basic; the bathroom was recently renovated. Beds were fine. The staff was friendly, wifi worked well in the room. In the basement there is a full... More

Not far from the ferries, this hostel has a lot of rooms simple but modern. It's not so far away from the center but you can find closer. We have a room for two, it was big and quiet. The very good point is that you can enjoy the sauna in the morning for free ( and we were alone... More

The basics are. 1) Ultra clean. 2) Friendly staff. 4) Decent location. 5) Great amenities. Things I didn't like about the hostel. I cannot think of anything that was wrong with Fat Margaret's hostel. Would recommend a stay... More

If you're arriving by bus, be warned its out the other side of town so takes around 35-40 minutes to walk to, there is a tram that stops near but I couldn't find the spot, once you get there though the hostel is very well situated, being a 5-10 minute walk in to the centre of the old town, the...

The hostel is in a good location, about 10 minutes walk from the ferry terminals and 5 minutes to Old Town. The room was clean and you get a locker for free which has all your linen in it.

Nice hostel with a big kitchen and a morning sauna. Perfectly clean. Great location close to the old city centre. It looked more like a hotel than a hostel. I would definitely recommend this hostel. .
