I arrive late looking for a private in a hostal was a challange, I asked to pay one day at a time which was denied. Next day at 8:00 am the construction crew arrive and proceeded to demolish the front on the premise for three floors to replace all the wall of window. The common areas desappeared, the kitchen became a construction area, with fruit and food left out where it was. At half past midnight I could not accept the hammer drill any longer demanding the work stop.

Does what it says on the tin. Functional hostel in great location apart from expense of no free parking (costs €13.80 to park overnight in nearby 24hr multi-storey or €4 overnight on street up to 8am only and €2 thereafter.). Small but very clean and lovely easygoing cosmopolitian friendly atmosphere. Very close to quays where you can practically smell the sea. Lovely quaint kitchen area with balcony window above the street. Many artistic murals on walls and doors. Yes I would go back :-)

NOT RECOMMENDED This place costs nearly 30€ a night. Here is what you get: A bed (doh),Wifi internet,A very basic breakfast Here is what you don’t get even though it is listed on the profile: Steam room,Hair dryers,Luggage storage,Laundry This place feels dirty. It is cleaned but that didn't change the fact that it looks dirty all the time. This place needs a lot of TLC! Things to note: Cash only, 20€ key deposit, everything locked up at 23h, no alcohol allowed

Really loved the free fruit! It was nice to grab an apple after traveling all day! Also, the staff was very friendly and I appreciated them giving me a tour first and not jumping straight to the paymeny.

All around a pretty great hostel! The girl running the show is wonderful and very helpful but the guys are unfriendly. Good breakfast and kitchen. The only downfall of the place is the limited number of bathrooms/showers.

Friendly staff, good location, good kitchen with free fruit out all the time also cereal, toast, juices and tea and coffee for breakfast. Good wifi connection. Fairly spacious rooms - only issue was the pillows were very hard and the beds weren't the comfiest. Some spots were a bit dirty but overall a good place to stay :)

The water for the shower has only melt your face off hot or hypothermia cold, and you don't get to choose which. The shower also was clogged while was there. THERE ARE NO LOCKERS, so you have to trust that no one will take your stuff. Everything just felt or look unclean. The comforters were very comfy and warm though. However, the manager they have right now is very lenient and laid back and super super nice. If you have a problem, he will find a solution.

The location is perfect, but the upkeep and cleanliness of the hostel really lets this hostel down meaning it is NOT good value for money. Our room was not cleaned or hoovered, there was hair and dust covering the floor. The sink was disgusting and the mattress was appalling. I cannot fault the staff, they were helpful and cheerful but I could only pay with cash which was a nuisance and was provided with no receipt.
