Bru bar was an excellent walking distance to the city center, and was very easy to find. The bathrooms were kind of gross, but I guess that's what you get when you share two with 8 people. Very cramped in the room-there is only room for the beds and a small walking area to the side (think hallway next to bed). The bedsheets didn't look like they were washed either. You get what you pay for.

The location is good here, close enough to where you want to be but quiet enough at night. Good internet signal too, necessary as a traveller! Only one bathroom/shower available though and the room is a tight squeeze.

Room was warm and clean and showers were hot during our stay. Only noise was a bit of traffic in the morning. Staff were friendly and very helpful. The bar downstairs was fantastic. I would recommend staying here.

The room size has never been something I cared about before my stay here. the rooms were TINY. Peoples stuff had to basically be on tops of each others. There were only one set of plugs and it was at the head of someones bed which made it impossible for others to use comfortably. there were cages under the beds but there was no way to lock them...what's the point in that? breakfast was hardly worth it. Warm milk, cereal and toast with jam available.

The wifi only works in common area, which is filthy. Also breakfast was never restocked and the eating area was a mess. Room was incredibly tiny.

Went for two nights with a group of lads. Great spot, excellent staff, no frills but certainly served the purpose. Good bar too.

Small room, took me a while to close the big clumsy sach window that made the room cold. Was fine as somewhere just to sleep for the night. Not the worst place I've been in. Overpriced for what it was.

Nice place. We stayed on a Monday so there was not much happening. There seemed to be a lot of live in students and also older guests as well. That's not a big deal however it was awkward when we got up hung over to get our breakfast and there were others in the room studying or checking over their spreadsheets before work

This ia a well run hostel, close to the city. Very clean. Good entertainment most evenings.Though luggage left can be on a trust basis...

Staff were great, really helpful with ideas and locations etc. good bar downstairs with lots of decent beers, also pretty reasonably priced! Had some good live music on a night that we stayed! Nicely located, very short walk from the town! Good hostel, highly recommend.

WIFI wasn't working. Kitchen was filthy. Stayed in a 3 bed private that was clean enough but very squishy. Located on a busy road, so traffic was very noisy all night and the chainsaw at 7am didn't help either.

I found the staff very pleasant & helpful, You notice the clean and tidiness in the Hostel as you walk in and also in the rooms, Very quiet at night time and easy to get a good night(s) sleep, I did not cook there but the kitchen facilities looks good. Live Music in the Bar also. I would recommend to anyone and I will be back there again. Regards Neil Walker.
