...Do yourself a favor and skip this one. Slow ineffective reception, the security terminal on the gate is difficult to use when going in or out, place is filled with passionless and humorless staff. Lodgers are also just as bad as the staff/ if not worse!:- most being 18-20 who sound & act like they have just left the milk-bottle; especially true during evening times. Dorms were also ultra-basic and felt like an afterthought. There's plenty of party hostels on Long street, why settle for this?.
A great location (right at Long Street, where everything happens in CT) and a super nice staff that does everything to help you out. However, have in mind this is a super party hostel, and even after midnight the music continues loud. I've stayed in other hostels that are very loud, but at night it is possible to sleep. At LSB it is really hard to sleep. Another problem is that in the reception everybody smokes. Overall, a good option despite the loud sound and smoke in the reception.
