The following is no joke , the stairs into the room were like climbing a vertical ladder, the worst was to use the shared bathroom which was located a level below not a easy task especially in a bath towel because there is no hooks/storage for other clothes in the bathroom , we were unfortunate enough to have our shower time after another guest toilet break where it always smelt .A quick shower was impossible because the water temp changed freezing to scolding hot often, terrible experience!

Lovely place, stairs are a bit tricky and the bathroom is on the middle floor (of 3) so if you're on the first or third floor you have to go up and down some stairs to go to the toilet, there is a sink in each bedroom though so you don't have to leave your room to brush your teeth etc. The room is very basic, you get what you pay for, (there is free wifi though!) but it was exactly what we needed at the best price around for the location. Overall excellent hostel, I would go back!

Excellent service throughout, 3 friends stayed together good value for money even got a discount because of a mix up. Small rooms, Tightly packed but expected from a hostel/hotel. Ok facilities, had to use shower by hand. really friendly service and smoking was negotiable. highly recommend for a budget trip exactly what you need and there was even breakfast.
