Pros: The staff were friendly and responsive. The location is good. A fifteen minute walk puts you downtown, and a bus runs right in front of the property. Cons: The wifi is very marginal, and often required re-loading sites. Video chats were a challenge. The walls are pretty thin, allowing the noise from adjacent rooms, and the beds are creaky and loud, but comfortable. We did not try the breakfast. For a hostel, the value is good and we got what we expected. I'd stay again.

My stay was pleasant and staff was very helpful at all times. Rooms were daily cleaned which was well received.


The hostel was cool and clean, and the woman of the reception was very kind. The hostel it's a bit far from the touristic centre if you want to go on foot. You must pay 3 pounds for the WiFi use, and it doesn´t always work properly.
