Toilettes are shared, that is something you know at booking time, what you don't know is they are as clean as a pub'toilette, therefore, stinky and dirty. Just entering the hostel stairs, you will be welcomed by a fragrant smell coming from the toilette of the pub on the ground floor of the same building. By the way we ordered some drinks, and not surprising one of the glass was still covered by some red lipstick from someone else. Only positive notes are the guys attending the pub.

We had no issues with the room itself, nor the location and staff. Only issue would be the lack of any insulation/sound proofing qualities of the window in the room (it appeared that the rubber seals were either missing or had deteriorated). This made sleep quite difficult, due to the traffic and city noise outside.

We were really happy with the place. The manager gave us a free upgrade from a twin bedroom to two singles, and the girl who dealt with us at checkin was friendly, quick, and told us everything we needed to know. The rooms were about as large as I was hoping for, and having private shower (which worked pretty well) in them was good. The shared toilets were clean and nicely decorated. Our only complaint was that the beds were a little firm. Definitely a cut above the usual hostel standards.

The staff members were very kind and helpful with us but we did not have a good stay. We were cold the first night and were changed to a different room, which was a bit better but both rooms were dirty and the worst thing was the smell of urine that we had to go through every single day when we accessed the hotel from the bar - the door wasin front of the men's toliet. Not staying there again :(

It's perfect for what it is. Clean & functional although the shower is completely open in the 3 bed room. The pub does a great burger too.

No hand soap in the toilets. Pillows were disgusting. Other than that a very good stay that I'd consider again.

It was quite cold in the room because the window doesnt close properly. If you want to get to your room, you have to use the backdoor where it smells to urin. Also its quite difficult to sleep if you dont party all night long because you can hear the really loud music from the pub. Since it was quite expensive i cant recommend so to sleep there.
