In terms of memorable stays, they don't get much more memorable than this place - mainly due to the loose guy running the joint, Sean. We arrived at the hostel without a booking and without any knowledge of what the place was like. Sean was very helpful in sorting us out with a room for a couple of nights and providing information on what to do in the city, and he was only partially drunk at the time. While this place may not be everybody's cup of tea, with somewhat thin bedroom walls, his dog getting groomed on the kitchen table, and Sean's tenancy to hit the bottle/darts and nap during the afternoon, you're unlikely to find a more genuine place to stay. Sean will go out of his way to show you where to eat and drink, tell you what to and what not to do around the town, but most of all, provide the most entertaining of stays. The rooms are clean, as are the amenities, and the location and value are as good as you'll get.
