The man at the front desk was really nice to us and was surprisingly not annoyed by our obnoxious party. The atmosphere of the hostel is really cool, the locals go to the bar on the ground floor and lie down on the beds (yes, beds) or sit on mismatched sofas and chairs. There are many bars, pubs, restaurants and clubs lining the street that we wished we had stayed for more than two nights. The castle is five minutes away, and the shops nearby are awesome, especially the vintage shops.

The "kitchen" is 2 microwaves, a tea kettle, & mini fridge that closes at 10pm. The staff merely checks you in & has nothing more to say after that. The hallway smell of the bathroom which are hit or miss on being clean or flooded from some kind of leak. The lights in the shower room constantly turn off & there is nowhere to put your things or hooks & the floor is wet. Was in 7 bed room. Too many beds in the room & nowhere at all to put luggage. The place looks cool but is a hassle. Wifi is bad.


Cozy hostel. The breakfast was very simple- cereal or toast. It would've been nice to have some fruit or juice considering the amount we paid per night (£20). The location was ideal in that we were close to everything but far from ideal for noise. Since it is located on a walking street in the center of bars and nightclubs, there are people yelling and screaming until 5am.It was helpful that the hostel staff allowed us to keep our belongings before/after checkout/checkin

No proper kitchen, but okay for two nights. Small bathrooms which weren't that good. There was some mould in the male's bathroom. But the atmosphere and decoration of the hostel is fantastic.


There's no adaptor for pluging in foreigners devices.
