    I stayed here with a friend for two nights in November. We had a private ensuite room and I can't recommend this place enough! It's a great location, really nice communal area, beautifully decorated, spotless, very comfy beds, really really helpful staff and awesome breakfasts!...More

    Great hostel, great location with clean facilities and comfortable rooms and beds! Met some great people here but the front area could be made to have a bit more character and bring people together more, it’s a large space and can feel quite empty. Other...More
