Didn't even check in! Arrived at the City resort hostel and I wouldn't send my worst enemy there! Looked like a drug den and was discusting. We had booked a 6 bed room for 6 people and room wasn't available, the receptionist offered 4 beds in one dorm and 2 beds in another room that they didn't have any keys for! We had to book alternative accommodation as the we refused to stay in a room which we didn't have a key for! Would defiantley not recommend this hostel to anyone, avoid at all cost!

Although the hostel is good value for money the staff didn't seem to know much. I wasn't told where any of the facilities were, my room wasn't clean and still had clothes in it and one of the staff was so uneducated he couldn't figure out that Wednesday to Wednesday was 7 nights and I had to argue that I wasn't paying an extra night.

Worst hostel ever. We are use to live with low standards but this was worsed than living on the street (or pretty much the same). We left the hostel after 20 min even if we had already paid for 3 nights. That is how bad it is. We did not get our money back but it was so worth it. I have never bothered to write a rewiew before but this time I really had to help other people so they don't book this hostel. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOSTEL EVEN IF IT IS CHEAPER!!!

This hostel is about to be knocked down and converted into flats. It was noisy, dirty - the hallway smelt of urine. The sheets were clean, but that's all
