Chilled hostel, attracts cool people and has a popular bar attached (popular with Erasmus students, especially on a Monday). This is the perfect place for a solo traveler looking to meet some others. Place was neat and tidy and staff were friendly and helpful.
Awesome hostel in great location. Stayed here a couple nights, the bar is awesome ad they have good happy hours. Beds comfortable and quiet. Free skateboards to borrow which is cool! All rooms have free linen and lockers. Close to centre of town and good food near by with supermarket over the road. What more do you really need?
Super cool hostel. The rooms and facilities were fantastic. And clean! It was easy to meet people in the common room, and I loved the idea of Super Happy Half Hour - beers for €1,00! The staff were all really friendly as well.
Did not seem as described, and not what I expected from an officially recommended hostel. The daytime entrance was dark and led into the bar, on the opposite end from the reception, and smelled of beer and cigarette smoke. Inside seemed pretty dark too, especially for the daytime. The wall murals were unsettling. The noise from the bar at night was disturbing as well, despite their best efforts to keep the noise contained. Booked four nights, and spent just one.
Great hostel, and really good mix of staff made us feel right at home. Special thanks to Maddie and Luke - hope we weren't too much trouble!
I really liked staying in the hostel ! But I would acutally appriciate in the rooms a chair and mattocks or something where you can hang up used towels etc...

A decent hostel - not a plush place, but clean. Grungy rock type hostel in terms of music and decoration. Fairly basic but comfortable enough and a good place to meet people and have fun, which is what it's aiming for. Connects to a pub and they also serve beers on tap in the hostel, so good for drinking! The city's small so it's a short walk to anywhere really. The staff are friendly, the internet's OK and you can get some sleep too as the rooms aren't noisy.
Awesome hostel. Staff was great, place was clean, reasonable price, and great atmosphere. Highly recommend
Real good place, good setup, good people and nice rooms. Laundry took a while but that was my fault I'm sure! Which door to enter through still confuses me, but apart from that good job guys!
I loved the style of your hostel and Lori Gavin was awesome too! It was pretty cool to listen some spanish and hers was excelent. Give two beers to that girl please!
Crazy place to stay. Friendly staff members. And nice happy hour!
Buzzing to get in every time is a bit annoying but otherwise it's great
everything was good except for wifi, staff was nice and helpful
Staff its really good and kind, the positicion its perfect. Not a lot of people when i traveled there (october). Rooms are cheaps and clean.
Friendly staff! Easy place to meet people because of common room/kitchen and hostel also has a bar! Plus they have cool things like skateboards and bikes to use :)
I would have to say that this is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. Everything's spotless and clean, staff are amazing, especially the irish girl, (blanking on her name sorry!) the facilities are superb, really spacious, free skateboards/longboards to explore the city with, just amazing. Superb place.
Great hostel and atmosphere! The bar and the people there is amazing! One of the best hostels in Europe by far!
Good hostel, well located and with friendly staff. Would've liked a better shower room, and a better mattress - but nothing to fuss about. Cool bar attached to the hostel & open to the public. Enjoyed the decoration, but thought the common area could do with a few more sofas or floor-pillow things...since I was travelled solo, maybe was a little unlucky with two big groups staying at the hostel - but still managed to meet other solo travelers. Well located, a stone's throw from the flower market
One of the best hostels I've ever been to. Super clean, I felt like there was always someone cleaning. The bar next door is very popular around locals so there's always something going on. Rooms were small but beds are comfy. Kitchen is perfectly equipped. Beer is cheap. You can sleep at night because the noise stays in the next door bar. Definitely worth a visit!
