Everything about the place was wonderful except for the noise level (outside) at night which made it difficult to sleep. The staff was great. It is very clean and spacious and a great value.

Great location! It's a small and cosy hostel. Older building so the floor makes some noise but nothing to worry about, no other noise issues which I was worried about after reading other reviews. Very relaxed vibe, easy to strike up a conversation in the common room/kitchen. Only two bathrooms for three floors, they were always clean but smelled a little funky because they never really get the chance to be dry. All up very good value for money.


Unfortunately I cannot complete this survey, because I received an email from this hostel saying there was a mistake with hostelworld and there was no available beds


There's a good kitchen and helpful staff, but it's an old building so you hear everything, and only two bathrooms for five floors. That said, you can't knock the location, and it was clean and surprisingly comfy beds! Nice staff too.


They kept reception open for us until we arrived but then staff rushed our check in, we had no idea where to go to locate food etc. our room door wouldn't shut or lock. 2 toilets for the whole hostel meant long waits in the morning.


They kick you out from 11am-1pm for cleaning, which was fine except I was hungover. Otherwise, fantastic beds, bathrooms, kitchen, staff, views, and all in the heart of the city. I would absolutely stay here again.

the location is great, staff is friendly and helpful - the toilets and bathrooms must be cleaner, was not so comfortable - the rooms were clean though - the wi-fi didn't work for one day, but they fixed it the other day, apart from that there is enough to do and see in the beautiful old town. improve the cleaning of bathrooms and the stability of the internet, and you will be top choice !


I got bedbugs when I stayed at this hostel and the staff assured me I would get my money back but they never returned the money into my account. I am very disappointed because the hostel seemed clean and the location is great. I spoke with the manager over the phone and she promised to return the money. I wrote an email asking about the return of the money and they never responded.
