First thing to mention is the staff, Absolutely fantastic and reacted quickly to any issues. Really make you feel at home and want to resolve your issues quickly. Karl, Sam and Rado where all fantastic, thank you. Really helped me out when booking.com system failed. Good points- Rooms are kept really clean,huge box under bed is great feature,locations is perfect with bus stops on your doorstep.Bad points- NO fridge space, two normal fridges just isn't enough! I can't imagine how it is in the summer. I could get anything in at all for my entire stay. Noise from the kitchen chairs above our room is unbearable (but the staff are reacting to this having not been aware) Heating was not working properly at times but now they have put it on a timer (although I think 7pm is a little late at this time of year but will be fine for the summer) and windows are left open by the cleaners making it cold when you return back to the room in February. It got REALLY cold during the night and needed 3 blankets to keep warm, the other girls struggled too. Quite a lot of power cuts during the week too but were mostly rectifies quickly . Wifi connection was great though, no issues at all! Breakfast is basic but adequate. Basically cornflakes, bread,yoghurt, cheese and ham with jam. There is some fruit (Apples and oranges) and you have to ask but a few other options would be nice for those who are gluten free. A second toaster was added during my stay and definitely needed! For the first 7 days the shower didn't get very hot, only luke warm (and at this time of the year wasn't too nice) but did heat up toward the end of my stay. There was no tin opener in the kitchen but they planned to get another (as they keep getting stolen!) Overall a great hostel mostly due to the staff attitude and location. If the issues are resolved as they promised this would be a really great place to stay in the future and would definitely stay again.

First off the building itself is stunning, great view of the bay and loads of space to relax! The staff is great and it is obvious they are constantly trying to improve on a already great place! Good location walking distance from Paceville and the bars and restaurants on the waterfront. This has been a great place to stay and I highly suggest it!

Good hostel with very friendly staff who are helpful!

The only reason it is awarded 3 stars is that it was super cold the first night and heating was not working in our room neither was the hot water. This was eventually sorted.

Also upon arrival, I was told guests are asked to be quiet after 11 pm, unfortunately, it was extremely loud until about 3 am and I barely got any sleep the first night.

Breakfast is super basic - I ended up skipping it in the end.

Otherwise great location!

Really great location, beautiful view, nice breakfast, nice atmosphere. It’s not a super ‘party’ hostel so sleeping was fine and met plenty of nice people there to hang out with. Would definitely recommend.
