I stayed on Castle Hostel and always felt I was in home. The people are great, really friendly and helpful. It's one of the best places to be regarding the city since you can easily access any part of it really quickly. The room was very clean and add all the services you might need including free WiFi, The breakfast was very good and the kitchen was always clean. The best you can find for the price / quality.

Kind staff and nice night stay. If you're in town and need a bed, we recommend it (but not if you're looking for a big party).


A couple of tables with benches that must be shared would be preferable to the narrow shelves now. And the dining area could double as a lounge area much more comfortably.


Good overall! Worth recommending...


It would be nice to have wi-fi in more of the hostel rather than just the front room. The host and staff were lovely, the location was excellent. One of the better hostels I have stayed in!


The room was perfect but there is two points I did not like in this hostel : - the wifi was ok only at ground 0 but our room was on second flour and we did not have wifi. - there was nobody at reception in the morning to give back the keys when we left at 8am


Clean, tidy and great breakfast. Maybe they should change the mattress, that's all.
