Myself and my boyfriend we're staying here for 2 nights. The Friday night was grand, with no noise. But the Saturday night we were woken up at 4 am to a group of very loud people that arrived back. They were shouting and arguing and even took it out onto the streets. We didn't get back to sleep until about 5.30 am,when they finally decided to go to bed. I couldn't fault the place otherwise, but it seemed there was no security that could have stopped them

Very basic and over-priced.


It is way to expansive for a guesthouse. Breakfast is worth for the extra 5€ you have to pay.

I booked in the week of the races and for value for money, was SUPERB... Would recommend it to others. Perfect location ie 5 minute walk from the heart of the city where all the pubs are and located near the bus station.

I really like the guest house. There was no one around if you had questions but there were pamphlets and such. We just went to the Western Hotel across the street like suggested for help. Be sure to take advantage of the cheap breakfast at the Western 5 Euro for a small buffet and then you can order a hot breakfast on top of it. Great price! There are only windows in the room and no fan or AC just so you know for the summer months.


I Having prepaid online its annoying to see a sign in the window advertising a better rate than what you paid. Grand otherwise


We really enjoyed staying at this hostel. The most negative aspect would be the location, I think, since our room was located just next to a busy road. Apart from that, the room was fine. A bit small, but that was not really a problem for us. The staff was great and helped us whenever they could. They booked our bus trips and even answered the phone immediately at 4 am because someone in the room above us was shouting all night long. A staff member came and solved the problem right away.


Wonderful guest house with a large kitchen and washer/dryer very near the city center. The only problem was we had to park in a pay car park a couple of blocks away since there is no street parking. Nonetheless, highly recommended.
