Big hostel with great areas to meet people - perfect for a solo traveller. Location is great and kitchen is big. It's quite loud until late if that's something that bothers you, but otherwise I had no complaints.

Great, great vibes here. The vibrancy of the space, with two excellent socialising areas and a fully equipped kitchen, is a brilliant change. The staff are super friendly, and it's easy enough to lock up your valuables with them at the office. Accessible location, and the bowling alley/bar downstairs caters to anyone looking for a good time with as little walking as possible. Everything's clean and well maintained, and free breakfast is always a plus. Would highly recommend.

Pretty good location and seemed very clean. There was a huge lounge with a ton of couches and places to work on your computer along with an enormous kitchen and dining area. Very vigilant about security and there were narrow lockers underneath the bunk beds. Only thing is the traffic outside is a bit loud and it's right underneath a bowling alley, which could also get a bit loud. Also a lot of noise if your bed was by the wall next to the lounge. But bring ear plugs and you should be okay.

Good in general, but there are some little problematic details. A bit far from the coach station and the city centre. Hopefully the way to go is simple. Kitchen is quite big, and well-equipped. You can find a bit dirty, especially when there is a big group in the hostel. Toilets in rooms are clean, but showers are terrible. Just cold. If you like it... Free breakfast is always good =D I was there on a Friday, and there was a pub crawl organized. It was super. The staff organiser is very cool !

Nice hostel, good vibe, chilled, good kitchen facilities and common room. Showers on one side of the hostel are poor. Wifi cuts out and nobody can explain why. Staff very friendly but a bit laid back. Altogether a great place to stay

It's a good place in the heart of the city and is value for money. There can be some improvements in the areas of cleanliness of the rooms as one of the room was smelly even I asked for spraying a room freshener in the room.

The hostel was full of middle aged men who all seemed to be staying there long term for work, so travelling as 2 girls, we felt very uncomfortable with the amount of men always in the kitchen and common room. Toilets and showers weren't the cleanest and both males and females used the same shared bathrooms. Our room didn't feel clean and the windows did not close properly so the room was quite cold.
