Pro: Small Hostel with a great atmosphere, located in the city. Good mix of people. Friendly and Helpful Staff. Kitchen is clean and sufficiently equipped (3 fridges). Free Breakfast, free lockers and free wifi are also a plus. The community area consists of a TV Room and a Balcony. They also have a ping pong table to use. Contra: The 4 Bed Dorms could use some more power outlets. The Wifi doesn't work in the Dorms, you have to go to the kitchen or community area.

Cleanliness - like a pig sty- very unclean when I moved in. Pans with leftover food. Room had a lots of dirt and debris on the floor. Security - They do not take responsibility of anything. Not even your stored luggage. Location - Still a distance to walk to the main city area (20 mins) Atmosphere - Stayed with 2 tradesmen. They seem to be on long term stays and had their workclothes in the room. Not the type of people i was hoping to stay with. Facilties - sub par


As such, a lovely place, but there were many long-term guests which often were quite noisy at night and left kitchen and balcony untidy. Our room was good, but other facilities could be better (few toilets, washing area doesn't look very inviting). On the plus side - they offer free breakfast and the owner is very friendly and helpful.


The one thing that's absolutely fantastic is the staff here. Very friendly and helpful. Quite some downsides as well. Hostel is small but very noisy, especially in the weekends when there's a party atmosphere all over the place. Extremely noisy vending machine in the hallway and very poor breakfast. Room had no ventilation possibilities. Wifi didn't always work. Limited reception hours. Wouldn't book again.


They had some long term stay people here that didn't return shared items like cups plates to the kitchen. Couldn't make a cup of tea because there was no cups or sugar. Not a huge deal but its a basic I have found in other hostels.


Fantastic location, very helpful staff, nice warming atmosphere.


Warm atmosphere, clean and tidy. Nice common area with a relaxing balcony. about 10-15mins walk to the heart of night life..haha Friendly staff, I was enjoyed the night in My Place:)
