I have mixed feelings about this hostel on the one hand it's located in the best possible place. this comes at a prizes because the house is realy old and you see that when you enter the hostel. The roof top bar is amazing. the rooms are clean, the bathroom facilities are avarge, water is warm though. Stuff friendliness varys with the guy at the counter. some friendly some not.


Location is fantastic and you cant beat the view from their bar. That said, probably one of the worst beds i have ever slept on (I was in a bunk), and being stingy on providing paying guests with something like toilet paper is a little extreme. Bathroom and shower facilities leave something to be desired and aren't ideal on stays longer than a night or two.

Great stay at Captain's Youth Hostel. The place was very clean and well looked after and the staff were helpful. Price was a little higher than other hostels in the area, but a short stay is worth the view from the 6th floor bar. Location is great and they even have a washing machine (but no dryer) for those of us on the road.


The rooms are fine, the roof top bar is great. The front desk staff can be challenging.


The staff were rather terse, the main lobby was dimly lit - gave a pretty drab atmosphere night and day. Bar was brilliant though.
