The dorms are great with high ceilings and the beds are fixed to the wall so they don't move, which is great. Even the view from the window was magnificent.

Really great community rooms! I really enjoyed my stay, excellent location and front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Its close to everything, very short walking distance to wherever you want to go in the center. STAY HERE! Only problem was the girls in my room and their shopping bags in the morning.

Thank you so much!! Glad you enjoyed your stay, except for the noisy shopping bags, that sounds like a bit of a nuisance but glad it didn't affect your overall stay :)

The Hostel is very well-located (just in front of the castle and some blocks away from the railway station). Th girls bedroom was huge, comfortable with enough sockets. The only bad thing is the breakfast is not included in the price.

Lovely high ceilings, maze like layout of the building, great facilities especially the multiple number of sociable rooms, the movie room and the huge kitchen. I would definitely recommend this place and stay here again with beautiful views of the castle.

The Castle Rock hostel was an amazing experience especially for a solo traveler. The atmosphere encourages socializing among each other and build friendships without requiring to much effort. The events the hostel offers as well as the social rooms are great! The nice thing about this hostel is you get nice large lockers with keys(deposit required) that keep your belongings safe. Staff is very welcoming. Only downside is that the bathrooms have reusable towels which is the best sanitation wise.
