The only problem is that you need the staff even to get some water..

Great staff members, helpful and friendly. I had some messed up plan, but they were happy enough to accommodate my needs and did no make a big deal out of it. Big thumbs up guys !

Showers and toilets were clean, however I felt that the actual bed area was quite unclean. But ok for €12.50 per night.

I still think that writing a review is not a good idea. People will want to book there and next time i will want to book a bed, the hostel will be full... Altruism will kill me

This place might be cheap but it's certainly not cheerful. It's so cheap in fact that it was worth the while of two Dutch ladies checking into the hostel just to find things to steel. They ended up stealing one girls mobile phone and wallet while she was showering. When the girl realised her things were stolen the Dutch ladies had already "checked out". I would liken this place to a homeless shelter. One night and I was outta there!

PROS: Good location, friendly staff and simple breakfast. The common room is also nice and they have some board games and pinkg-pong to play. The wi-fi is good. CONS: not cozy.

It is cheap and has really friendly atmosphere. I enjoyed a lot. But the cleaning can be enhanced. Espeacially, for the bedding stuff.

Great hostel, although our room was a bit cold. The rooms were very spacious as well which was surprising for the amount of beds per room. It was very close to the train station and we were also able to rent bikes from the hostel for very cheap. They also had a small breakfast which was just average.

Normally I wouldn't bother giving a review to a hostel, however Mafkees is different. People complain about not getting bedding or the beds not being of amazing quality but what do you expect when you're spending as little as £7 a night! The living room is fantastic and incredibly homely, staff are incredibly friendly and laid back just remember to bring cash to pay as there's no card system.
