“Good service.”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

It was a great hostel to stay at. The service was good and the rooms were quite clean and airy. It was actually big or I was just lucky enough to be upgraded as the place was empty. Location is quite far, as it is set in the suburbs outside the main city center. It is fine if you are with friends as it just a few minutes walk but if you are alone, it can be quite a drag.

Enjoyed another great hostel stay. Kitchen is 1st class, rooms are nice and clean, beds are pretty good for a hostel but pillows are typical hostel pancakes. Toilet and shower facilities roomy and clean. Staff is wonderful.

The downsides - it seems like there is no sound proofing anywhere and while there are hooks in the shower areas there is not a single one in the rooms, maybe because there is lockers but nowhere to hang your jacket or wet towel.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the self catering kitchen are probably quiter.

We stayed in this hostel for 1 night and booked a double room in advance, paying a little extra for this. The staff in the hostel were friendly and helpful. I felt it was rather over-priced for what you receive but otherwise no other complaints,

Functional, clean hostel. No problems with booking in, or out. Staff friendly and helpful. Twin room comfortable and showers were clean when I was there.

Room Tip: Just ask for a twin room.

Reviewed February 27, 2012

stayed here for two nights, and highly considered changing to another place after my arrival and discovery of the condition of the bathrooms. There is no ventilation in any of them, and there is black mold growing thoughout the 2nd floor bathroom particularly. The bathroom floors were also neglected and filthy, and the garbage baskets were overflowing (seriously, a used condom laying on top of one....ewww). Some attempts have been made to update the hostel (i.e. laminate floors, and new paint in the entry), and the staff is friendly and helpful. The location is the best quality as it's 50 meters from the bus station, and about a block from the train station. I'm hopeful that they will read this review and step up their cleaning and ventilation issues as this hostel has good potential. Also, take the plastic coverings off of the mattresses as it makes one sweaty and stick to it.

Clean, simple, good value - does what it says on the tin! Good kitchen. If there's a coach party of schoolkids staying you will hear them through the walls, but that's true of most hostels.

We stopped there with a group on the way to the Orkneys and again on our way back.
The first time it was very disorganized. Registration took forever and the staff seemed overwhlemed. The room we had was dirty and smelly but at least we were in the same room.
On the way back, registration still took forever, they were still disorganised and we ended up sleeping in different rooms. The rooms this time were clean. The staff were still not very welcoming but at least that evening they did not look annoyed.
