The location is central, close to city centre. However, one of the showers was slightly clogged and hot water supply wasn't available. Wifi doesn't work in the dorm but is operational in the kitchen and at the lounge. Kitchen is neat and tidy. Free tea and coffee is a good offer.

Stayed here a few times and always a good option that is reasonably priced compared to the surrounding area. Not the most modern facilities but kept clean and tidy, friendly staff and a fairly convenient location for transport.

Nice stay there. Very friendly and helpful staff. I had a room (with three beds) with bathroom booked for myself and it was good. The only negative was that you do not get breakfast.

The hostel needs to be repaired. It has a lot of potential but is apparently under new ownership and needs work. There's a frequenting guest that talks to ghosts and is loud throughout the night.

Had to wait 45 minutes outside Of the door before someone came (even though I booked, arrived at the time said, and was during reception hours). Apparently they are understaffed and have to work at 2 locations. The shower did not drain, had about 2 inches Of water on the floor, which then went to the toilet... The water in the shower eventually drained, but not in the toilet. Not enough power sockets in the big doorm.internet went down the second night.

Good location. Only 7 minutes walk to the wall. Plenty of space to socialise including a terrace. I would definitely stay there again.

Lindsay is the most helpful host, don´t hesitate to ask her for anything you need, she´s always ready and jolly; the hostel was, for me, perfect, just a short walk from everything in the centre, silent at night and I could use the showers and leave my luggage even after check up. That was very helpful. Tea and iron facilities made a little happy difference for my interview day! :D
