The location was a bit out of the way, as I was travelling with no car it was hard to find. The staff have me directions by tram but failed to mention the trams weren't running because of roadworks, so I had to catch a taxi. The wifi wasn't very reliable but was still good considering it was free. Staff were friendly and altogether helpful.

The staff were very helpful and looked after a bag of belongings that I needed to leave with them for collection at a later date which I was able to do. Unfortunately other residents did not pay full respect to the need for cleanliness in the toilet. Staff would do well to leave a notice for visitors that urges them to clean the toilet after use, if necessary.


Definitely deserves more than current rating. For people who drive the location is very good - no problems with parking, traffic officers, congestion etc. Someone wrote in his comment it's in the dodgy area - definitely not true. Very pleasant and good looking kitchen. Hostel itself seems to be above UK standards which are generally average. Room was clean, linen fresh. Internet signal was very good. Recommended.


No laundry facilities at hostel Could make it more desirable as a place to stay if available


I enjoyed a one night stay in this hostel, and it really had everything I needed for that time. It was comfortable and clean. The location is a little out of the way, not too far from the city centre, but in an estate that doesn't feel like the safest of areas, especially when walking through it at night.
