this hostel is worth it for how cheap it is. the only issue is the staff. they are... helpful. but so weird. No one is a local so they know nothing, and they all hang out and drink and smoke in the roof top bar every night. The 'cleaning' is done daily but it doesn't make much difference, not that the place is filthy but it really could do with a major scrub down. good value but just has the weirdest vibe


It's a very good hostel. I have booked for a bed in a female dormitory but when i have go in, they didn't have a bed for me and because that they have give me a private room. It's was a very good room. And the place it's good, near the tramway!


Very nice roof top bar!

Staff is great


The location is good. Highly recommend for the ones who like to stay in the quiet area.


This was the last leg of our trip and we were disappointed to find the service was less than appealing. Staff were vague and didn't seem approachable. Rooms were poor for money paid, sheets were dirty and bathroom was a disaster. We were thankful to leave to be honest.
