Hostel is above a bar with cheap drinks and you can play pool for free before 7pm (if there is space). Great vibe. Staff were really friendly to us and gave us many recommendations on what to do. Hostel common room has a TV with DVD player and there is always some movie playing.

Really great location and super friendly staff! Great morning breakfast! Our top bunks were comfy in our dorms but having to walk outside to the bathrooms was freaking cold! But they were very clean which was great!

Definitely a good hostel! Great location, and nice rooms. The staff at the reception was not really friendly and the wifi is sometimes really slow, but I would still recommend it!

Great place to stay, the bar downstairs was cool and cheap, and right next to the city center. The wifi was good but it disconnects a lot and it doesn't reach the rooms. Also the bathroom floors always seemed wet. But I still highly recommend this place.

Great location just off the octagon. Free breakfast (and if it runs out of bread, they will give you more. Not always the case with free breakfasts). It's above a bar and pool hall so there is some noise from that in the late evening. Nice common area. Internet works and you get 200mb per day free.

The kitchen was quite small for the number of people and the beds were pretty awful (very rickety) but it was fine otherwise. The breakfast in the morning was a huge bonus

The downstairs bar was very cool and convenient. It was a great perk to be able to play some free pool and buy discounted drinks. It had a great atmosphere too; good tunes and cool music posters on the walls.

Great location, be aware it has external corridors so winter would be unideal.

Thanks for the comments. We have toilets at the end of all dorm corridors and it is only a 20 second walk outside to showers for the rooms shared facilities
