It's fine. Got a fantastic location, right in the middle of the city and is clean and secure. Staff were nice enough, didn't really know much about the city though. The communal facilities were basic. The 'cinema room' is a dark room with a TV in it and the lounge area was small and run down. The kitchen is not very well equipped for the size of hostel it is meaning waits to use knifes and cookers etc. Not really any atmosphere at all.

Only stayed here for a night. Stayed in an 8 bed dorm, did the job. People on the desk were very useful. The facilities were very good in the hostel, and the location was right in the city centre. Good value for money.

So nice hostel. More like a hotel. A lot of space in the room, central in the City, the staff were friendly to help and had open 24 hour in the weekend. Best of all I got a free pubcrawl tour because i arrived a special day - don't no why! 😄

The kitchen was very gross and dirty. The fridge and cupboards smelled like they haven't been cleaned out in quite some time and there were cockroaches running over the countertops when we arrived. Overheard the cleaning staff asking how much time was left in their shift and when told an hour they discussed going to hide somewhere for the last hour so as to not have to do work.

One of the worst hostels I've stayed at. Tthe kitchen is absolutely filthy. There's ridiculously only one small fridge for everyone to pile their groceries on top of one another. There's space to store your dry food, but good luck finding a shelf that doesn't have a squished cockroach or food scum. roach in the microwave. Have to pay for cutlery.. To top it all off with the obvious negligence with upkeep, the atmosphere is of a dismal seedy hotel. unclean facilities, no atmosphere, loud.

Hostel is in a great location although a bit of a walk from the bus station with a heavy backback. Hostel is fairly clean. Kitchen was gross in the early morning but it was being cleaned. Clearly just the other guests being filthy pigs. Kitchen could use a few more items for cooking. All in all one of the better base hostels I've stayed at.

Although the majority of the staff were friendly enough, the male receptionist who greeted us was not. He replied to our questions in a matter-of-fact and patronising manner. The facilities in the kitchen were also poor. In general the rooms were good value for the price but I wouldn't recommend a long stay.
