Over all the hostel is a good hostel the only real complaint is that there is no kitchen.


We checked in and picked our beds, then headed out. We were eating early next the morning, only staying one night. After we went through the check in process, we asked what the was procedure for checking out early. They wanted us to come back at 11pm to check out. We went out for the night, and when we came back, a woman had taken the bed I had previously picked (and told the staff of). Towels were 2 euros each, but the bathroom with the shower didn't even have a working light.


The hostel was clean. That is about the only positive thing I have to say about this hostel. Water is 2.50 euro which I think is unfair considering tap water is not provided. Several of the staff members are rude. An Irish guy could not answer my question saying I'd have to wait 15 mins. It's like dude your making an egg sandwich it's not that hard. Terrible hostel for solo travellers. But would be okay for groups. Would not stay there again. Be smart book ahead for the flying pig.


No kitchen, microwave facility is available though. Everything else was alright.


Paid about 70 euro a night for three nights... Way too expensive but was all available. Hostel was clean, slightly quirky and accommodating. Rooms have lockers and wifi. No real complaints. Not the best in world to meet people as a solo traveler but good.


Great location, smelly rooms, very smelly common area


If you want to stay just for one night is enough to sleep. Confortable bed, tiny toilet but clean.


Had an average stay here, location is great though! No individual power sockets per bed, we had four sockets in an eight bed dorm which proved very inconvenient! Reception isn't 24 hours, and smoking room closes at 2am! Reception doesn't open until 9am, and we weren't told this upon check-in, which made checking out early very troublesome. The showers were never really clean, and we were very disrupted by cleaning staff at 10:15 in the morning coming into the room.


I am happy to stayed there service was very good really enjoyed . Only one improvement should be made food selection can be better coffee and breakfast is need it be better apart that excellent


We staid here on the weekend of the 24-26th April and the price for the Saturday night was over £100 for a dorm room - we're assuming this is because the Kings day celebrations were starting on Sunday night, but that was pretty steep for us when we were leaving before the celebrations started! Location's good - not far from the main attractions and on a quiet canal. Accommodation is very basic, but fine if you're literally just sleeping there!


Very good!

The best thing about this hostel is the staff, by far. They are very generous and are always willing to help you in any way. The rooms are very small and no outlets for everybody. The beds are very comfortable and everyone has a locker to use. It's well located and you can walk everywhere.


Really great hostel. Good value for money and incredibly clean rooms! The Wifi didn't work in the rooms but everything else was perfect. The staff were amazing (especially the Spanish guy in reception, sorry I didn't get your name!). Excellent service, all round great place!

Extremely small and dirty bathrooms. The rooms were also very dirty, dusty, cobweb and have few electricity sockets. Even there is a place for smokers in the hostel, but the whole hostel has a cigarette smell and is very stuffy. If you are allergic to cats, they have one, which stay all day sleeping on the reception sofa. The guys of the reception are very friendly. The photos of the hostel on hostel world website has almost nothing to do with reality. I spent two days in a room of 8 people.


It doesn't have expected hostel atmosphere. Maybe it's in the middle of tourist spots that everyone just come and sleep. Rooms are too small and lounge area is smokey as hell. Smell of cigarette 24/7 if you are a smoker, maybe it's fine. It wasn't for me though. Wifi signal is too low most of the time. Especially, never had any wifi in the room even though they said they have a room wifi. I had to go down to search of attractions smelling smokes... will never going back again to the hostel...

The bathrooms were disgusting. Towels on the floor, hairs on the wall. So beyond disgusting. Rooms for right people were much too small. Meant for six, if that many.
