Love this place, brilliant staff and brilliant place


Good location, staff was nice. The room smelled bad though. The showers did not worked properly. It´s good for the price you pay.

The private dorm was nice, we had more than enough space. Only downside is that there was only one double plug socket, of which you could only use one. I think even just one more pair of sockets would be useful.

Nice room and bed but there was a lot of noise from the street in the morning rush hour. Would recommend using earplugs. Bathroom could be better. Staff was very kind and the bar in the basement was pretty cool.


I stayed in room 406 for one night. + Good points: secure rooms (ID and a key card are required), location is a minute away from the main high street and about five minutes away from the bus stop, good choice of breakfast foods, female-only toilets and bathrooms, the room, corridor and shower room were clean. + Negative points: the state of the toilets and the paintwork around the windows was not good, towels and clothing has to be left on a bench in the shower room, outside noise til 1am


Very dirty toilets, below average showers. friendly staff. poor breakfast.


Nous sommes arrivées à 5h du matin et comme il pleuvait et faisait encore nuit, nous avons demandé à pouvoir rester dans leurs canapés une petite heure en attendant que la ville se réveille un peu, on nous l'a refusé. Pas cool. La chambre au cinquième étage, c'était un peu dur dur aussi. Mais l'auberge est sympa, charme dû au vieux bâtiment, vraiment bien placé par rapport au centre ville.


Good location in the party district, good facilities apar from showers, way too hot had to rotate through all 4 showers until the water got too hot. Key card entry for rooms although no lockers in room but some in the reception hallway. Overall a dated building/ interior but does the job so I can recommend. Oh, the pub crawl was the worst ive ever been on, couldn't organise a p**s up in a brewery comes to mind, I'm not prudish or homophone but he took us to a gay barbar, cmon!


As with Hatters Liverpool, this seems like it had the potential to be a very social hostel, but it just didn't quite have the atmosphere. The staff member in charge of the various social activities was gone during my stay, so there was very little going on. All the other staff I met was extremely helpful, but if you're looking for a place to really meet people, this is probably not the place.


Big rooms, but only 1 power point in a 8 bed room. You can feel the springs in the bed. Girls bathroom wasn't even on my floor & even then, there was only 2 toilets & a lot of times, there wasn't any toilet paper. Good wifi in the room. Staff were good. Even though I saw the them clean, it was still pretty dirty. Loudest hostel I've stayed at, both inside and out. There was a youth group staying there that were loud & yelling in the halls & stairs & staff did nothing to quiet them down


Good for a night but wouldn't like spending too long here. Very disorganised when I stayed there, arrived at 2pm and was told I couldn't check in until 5. Staff weren't too helpful/uninterested and there were no lockers in the rooms. Also they apparently had no towels available while I was there. The toilets and bathrooms were always generally clean but the common areas, staircase, etc were always dusty and needed a good vacuum.


Highly recommend 5 *


Wifi is gratis en werkt super snel door het hele hostel. Hierdoor zie je wel bovengemiddeld veel telefoons bij het ontbijt. Als je echter wil en een beetje je best doet, kan je nog steeds interessante backpackers ontmoeten. De douches leveren eerder alleen lauw water. De lokatie is prima, vlakbij diverse leuke barretjes en je loopt zo het gezellige centrum in.


sporco e puzzolente, colazione scarsa, buona la posizione, simpatico il personale


Very good hostel Good location. Friendly staff. Good free breakfast. Clean.


Really good hostel, and super value.


Très bonne auberge, ambiance sympathique et conviviale et surtout un personnel extrêmement sympathique, arrangeant et rendant de service. Pour résumer, une super équipe dans un bonne auberge.


The staff were very friendly and easy to talk to. There was plenty of room in the dorms though the power outlet situation was an issue. The showers weren't very private and the toilets from the Stone Age but they all got the job done. Wifi was also great through the hostel.
