A very nice place to stay. A fantastic layout inside equipt with a bar, sky sports playing on the tv and a free beer on arrival! Perfect location being right in the middle of the old town over looking the river. Hard to beat.

5 minutes to hostel, very convenient, though spent some times to look for it (you can only see "Franks" outside the building, not the full name of the hostel). the room is big and very clean. And there is a big common room with a 24/7 BAR!!! awesome place to meet new people and drink and chat. The staffs are nice and helpful as well.
