We stayed at this place for 5 nights... We arrived fairly late in the afternoon and wasn't much light left to see the surroundings. First impression was there was a lot of busy people in the shared kitchen with guests and permanent lodgers (as we find out later on in our stay ).proceeded into our room which in poor lighting...

This place just changed its owner September 2015 and he changed the common living room into a big dorm. So there is no comon area besides the kitchen anymore. Besides that the place looks pretty much the same like 2013 (when I first visited). The new owner was a bit 'cold' when we arrived but became friendlier in the afternoon.... More

We had booked 2 nights and on arrival my first reaction was, let's find somewhere else. I looked run down and a large group were sitting at the entrance area drinking and all looked a bit weird. Turns out there was some sort of street performers convention and that is why the town was busy. We had to get a... More

Worst hostel EVER! Firstly I had a number of things stolen from my backpack, sentimental things that were given as gifts, asked to see cctv, firstly they said they didn't have then when I pointed out the sign that says '24 hour cctv in operation' they said they can't show me it! There is no lockers to put your things... More

We stayed there for only one night, but it was a really nice place, lovely rooms, great bath- toilet facilities. Clean and cosy. The kitchen has almost everything you need, except maybe some forks, knifes and spoons, but fine anyway. A place I would definitely recommend to other.

Most expensive backpackers I've been to so far in the last month, but by far the worst. Rooms were smelly, showers and toilets dirty. Dirty, smelly kitchen with just one proper spoon! I had to ask to open the lounge since it became a little bit to cold to stay outside. Manager wasn't happy about it all. Who else do... More

I have stayed here several times over the past few months. Basic yes, but clean, tidy and organised enough for me to recommend to family and friends. The new owners have always made me feel very welcome, often at short notice as I needed a base while relocating and studying a full time course. Thank you so much! and Happy... More

I didn't realise when booking that it was more for Backpackers and no one mentioned that we should have brought our own cutlery... soap.....hair dryer etc. Room was very small with a tiny en suite so we were grateful for that but very basic... no chair, no information folder, no teaspoon when we made a coffee... bedding looked 'tired' and...
