“Seriously the worst hostel i have ever stayed at.”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

AVOID!

I would have chosen 0 if the rating monitor would have let me.

Disgusting dorm room.

Seems like perminant residents smoke in bed - not using ash trays - from the piles of ash, and probably consume a fair amount of cider\vodka - from the empty bottle collection. The light switch was cracked and I saw a spark when i switched the light on.

I am a bit ashamed to say that I was on the point of walking out of the hostel - and I like to think of myself as a fairly easygoing traveller. I probably would have if i hadn't just given them my last euros. Ended up sitting up all night because I was worried my stuff would be stolen. How the mighty have fallen.

On the plus side though, they were solvent - which is more than you can say for the hostel which i booked before.

The D1 hostel is the most disgusting place I have ever had the displeasure of staying in!! Me and my friends were actually scared of going back there after our night out! The state of the bathroom was just unacceptable and I'm sure the environmental health would have a field day in there!

The area of town is very undesirable and do not walk alone around the hostel

To sum up, do NOT stay here if you do not want to catch something nasty or be mugged!!!
