I really liked this place. Clean bathrooms and my dorm was good too (take number 7). I really like how much outdoor space and the atmosphere was friendly. It's a good place if you want to meet people

The hostel was very very messy. Because of that everything seemed to be dirty. In the evenings it was very loud. If you look for parties and don't mind messy conditions, this hostel is good for you. If not, don't go there.


The hostel and the people there were really really messy. The staff was nice though. Good for people who want to party and do not mind messy conditions.


The hostel was really messy and we are glad to only stay for a Couple of nights. The staff was friendly though.


This hostel is perfect if you're looking to stay somewhere long term


We stayed for 2 weeks in lords lodge and really enjoyed our stay. The staff was really friendly and helpfull. You have everything you need and the city is close by. It's a good hostel for people in their 20's who like to party now and then. There are good rules too keep the noise to a minimulm. We will miss sangria saturdays!

This was not a hostel. It was a hovel and dive. The place is disgusting. I wouldn't cook for my dog in the kitchen. Long term backpackers treat the place as though they love living in disgusting places. Very disappointed and left after one night and got refunded the rest of my stay. Staff are lovely but have forgotten they are there to run the place not be the friends of those staying!


The Lords Lodge is a place for outgoing people. There is definitely a lot of noise at times but that's to be expected based on the location and atmosphere of the hostel. If you're expecting a quiet and peaceful experience you might want to look elsewhere, otherwise it's is a great place hang out and meet people who are generally nice and welcoming. There are plenty of social activities going on which vary from quiz nights to afternoons out doing something fun, so everybody can get involved!
