Love the Bru bar!


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.
