The bathroom was a bloody mess when I had a morning shower. There were leftover toiletries that needed to be binned and all the hand basins were covered in hair from shaving and for some odd reason pubes, this isn't the hostels fault I just think the guests were excessively useless which is saying something from a student's opinion. Because so much water accumulates on the floor of the bathroom I would suggest either putting in grated wooden floor mats or something so you don't stand in puddles.

The hostel was in a good location. Even though the kitchen was really busy and full of people, there was always space in the fridge and availability at the stove top. We were in a private room close to the bathroom which was nice since most other guests had to walk outside to get to the bathroom area, brrrr. The bed was not that comfortable, but good enough.


Great accommodation. Friendly staff. Will be back

Hi Nicole Thanks for your comments Matt


great central hostel. Please don't forget to actually greet your guests! It's bad customer service not to at least acknowledge people when they walk in and are obviously waiting to be served.

Unfriendly greeting from owner initially made a terrible impression! Breakfast and other backpackers made the scene just fine! A bit noisy and the kitchen could be improved...I guess some travellers have to be threatened to do their dishes. All in all my rating 75%. Needs small shelves in shower stalls! Cheers


Fab location, lovely facilities, lovely stay
