Not only a great hostel but also a great pub. And since it was also a pub, it was possible to talk with locals and people who were traveling. We were a group of four and stay in a four bed dorm. The beds were really comfortable and there were two sockets in every bed to charge the battery of the phone or camera (or use whatever you like) and the internet was fast. The entire hostel was really clean and new, with a very nice architecture. The only con was that there was no kitchen.


Fit bar maids but pretty poor hostel. Not good to visit as a lone traveller and poor music choice. All commerical rock from the late 90s. And a very boring Australian man lives there.
