Myself and 5 of my close friends stayed at Bob's. After booking the trip last minute and arriving without accommodation sorted we roamed the streets until we found Bob's.
Well .. it was an interesting stay. It was cheap which was great, so we weren't expecting the Ritz as we walked upstairs. We shared a room with 11 other people (one of which was a VERY loud snorer) the beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was a laugh. We also had some very trippy paintings all around our bunks which made for an interesting nights sleep after taking some happy pills.
The state of the bathroom was pretty poor and with only 1 toilet to share between 16 .. it could be an awkward wait sometimes. The shower was pretty poor as well, I may as well have had my mates spit in my hair as that would have been more powerful and soaked me more effectively.
Breakfast. Now that was hilarious .. not just because we were on a come down and sometimes higher than a Somali on midday munchies.
The location however was great. Pretty much central to all the bars and coffee shops so you don't need to worry so much about taxi's and buses etc.
Cant complain all in all .. did what it said on the tin. Cheap stay, reasonable rooms, great location.
