4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Great location, clean and safe. Chance to meet people from all around the world. The hostel is aimed towards a very young crowd so there is alot of noise at night. If you are hoping for a quiet nights sleep this is not the place.

3/5

    Room floor wasn't washed and room was a bit smelly. You have to make your own bed as the linen is left on top of the bed. Shared bathroom was on the other side of the hostel as we got a twin on the female side (me & my 8yo son) so we had to walk from one side to the other to have a shower. Some staff in reception and bar were very helpful but some others were not so kind. Hostel overall was ok for the price we paid but not what I expected. Would I stay again ? Probably not as for the difference of 30/40 quid a night for a decent hotel with private bathroom its not worth the hassle/savings. For a group of lads, is ok.
