Doesn't have a kitchen,Internet only at the bar, entire place smells like the toilets, staff wasn't the most helpful I've seen, doesn't have a common area to chill, it's a bad and a really crowded one so it's nice if you are up for it but if looking to chill at night, definitely not the right place.

Staff very friendly. Michael is LOVELY! Everything is great. Thursday night into the weekend is noisy at night, but all in good spirit.

I was a delight to stay there, the It has the most beautiful decorations I've seen in a hostel. The beds were ok, even though I am not a big fan of triple bunk beds. And if you are a person who wants to sleep peacefully, the nightclub beside the hostel can be a pain in the ass, but I don't really care for this so I had a great night of sleep. I recommend it, it is really near both train and bus stations, right in the city centre.

Bunkhouse is a good hostel but there's a lot of room for improvement. One of the gent's on the 2nd floor had 3 shower cabins, 1fine, 1 broken (without the door), 1 100% transparent glass (privacy anyone?!?). To make it worse, the window by the toilet had no curtains, which means that all neighbours could see you on the throne! Classic! Excellent location, staff didn't interact much with travellers, nice bar deco, but it lacked vibe..maybe because it was open to everyone, including non-guests.

LITERALLY THE CUTEST FRIGGEN PLACE EVER

Terrible rooms and facilities. It should say on the website when a room has triple bunks, especially when they're as hot and noisy as these rooms. Only one toilet to serve three rooms (20+ people) and there was a big window looking down on the strip club courtyard next door, so everyone can see you doing your business. No curtains on the showers, no toilet paper. Staff were unfriendly and overhanded in enforcing dumb rules.

Probably the worst hostel i've been to in my years of travel. When i got into the room , someone had taken my bed. So i had to just take another that seemed available. There where 27 people in the room. The noise from the streets never ended, of the three showers on my floor . One worked properly

No wifi in the rooms and triple stacked bunks in the six person dorm made the rooms extremely cramped even for a hostel. Staff was friendly with a nice common room downstairs.

Was very pleased with my stay at Bunkhouse, it was great value for money and a perfect location. My only negative comment is regarding the "no fancy dress" policy in the bar - I was refused service due to the fact that my friend had a flag wrapped around him - I felt that this was overly strict and the staff were not very sympathetic.

Well located, nice bar/common area. Staff ok. Maintenance is need in the lockers (room 8 - some are broken) and the courtains. My bed sheet was not so clean. Book shelves and room floor need proper cleaning. All in all is a good place.

Friendly atmosphere, stayed in an 18 bed room but it didn't feel like we were packed in there was plenty of space. Good night's sleep.

Security baskets were broken and the showers had annoying time press switches but everything else was great

This hostel had an amazing vibe and great location! Everything was clean and comfortable. Downsides were under bed crate storage to small for a backpack but with holes too big to just store small valuables. Light in the bathroom were motion sensored from the hall so I spent part of my shower in the dark but the water was hot. Plenty of outlets in rooms and great wifi in the common areas and a bar. Loved the decor! No kitchen, just microwave but one coming soon and they washed dishes for you

Weird showers, no wifi in the rooms. Tiny rooms with too many beds. The bar area was awesome! Loved the atmosphere down there.

Compared to Hostels in other parts of the world, notably Scandinavia, Bunkhouse's beds/rooms could be a little more open and internet could be a touch better. But it was extremely clean and safe, security was amazing and staff was warm and friendly. Location is absolutely stellar as well.

Best location. Good for somewhere to sleep at night but thats it really. Rooms are tiny with triple bunk beds. Area down stairs where you can hang if you like but is also open to the public. Staff werent overly welcoming but no issues.
