Great atmosphere, friendly and sociable staff. Had a great stay here, but dorms are a bit small.


The pictures online make the place seem a lot better than it really is. It's a cheap place to stay, but you definitely get what you pay for. The two main problems I had were that the dorm room walls didn't go all the way to the ceiling, so the noise was really bad...and the bathrooms/showers were awful...dirty, smelled bad, and zero hot water.


Very good communal area with helpful, friendly staff. Nice atmosphere. Only gripe was private rooms being in a different building where the wifi signal was poor... which is a shame when you pay more for the room. But great hostel!


DO NOT GO HERE. The hostel is nice but it has BED BUGS! We were not allowed to move rooms or even have clean sheets - apparently they were locked away and only the cleaner could get access in the morning! We also saw a mouse / rat inside the lobby area which is probably not that uncommon
