Lives up to the standard of every other large chain hostel that thrives to be the best yet can't even see fit to maintain simple things like cleanliness. Bathrooms were absolutely horrendous, I came out feeling dirtier than when I went in. Dorms weren't that bad, comfortable enough but that's as far as the positives go. Kitchen a disaster, a 7 floor hostel and only one working microwave. I wouldn't mind if their prices weren't so ridiculous for what you get. I'm still in shock. Stay elsewhere!!
I had a really nice stay there, it was clean and it's really well situated (30 seconds away from Courtenay Place). Only it's too bad that there is no free Internet.
Bathroom could've been kept cleaner (was on all female floor though) but I know it is a busy hostel. More kitchen pans would be good. Props for having 2 outlets. Expensive wifi. Overall a good experience but a bit overpriced.
I'm all about locations when i usually look for a place to stay, and this hostel well placed. You have lots of things around(bars, restaurants, museums, quay, grocery store). The bathrooms wernt super clean but they wernt that dirty either. The staff were extremely nice and informative. It's a really big hostel so meeting people is a bit harder but still not that bad. Overall I was satisfied.
Nice place but a bit expensive though
Great hostel. It's a bugger hostel but has a good kitchen and a decent bar..the drinks were kind of expensive. The staff were all amazingly friendly and helpful!
Both my friend and I tried to shower one morning to find it was freezing water - we asked why - they were having work done but we had received no waning this would happen. We tried to shower later and turned out the water was still cold despite the fact that we were told it would be warm by then. The beds were also uncomfortable. Not impressed considering what we paid.
