Stayed here on a uni trip and manh of us were dreading staying here. Not sure what some of the bad reviews are about. The price reflects what's avaliable: bed and breakfast. Rooms are clean, only real problems are no ladders to the top bunk (came home with a bruised shin from getting down) and the bathroom was small and the shower head was fixed, meaning showering was difficult. Yet happy hour was good, in fact great. 'Snacks' from the snack menu were plenty big enough, if not too big for a snack. I ended up having one of the snacks for a meal to myself. Not a brilliant hotel, but not sure where the title of 'worst hotel' has come from and I work at a 5 star hotel. Also, mikes bikes next door were good. I would recomme using them if wanting to go further away from the hostel then the bulb market or the gallery around the corner. Also very close to a Ben and Jerry's ice cream cafe and an irish bar. Trams are useful.
