Grumpy reception staff and very poor facilities make this potentially excellent hostel a big disappointment. Having paid quite a lot to stay here, I was not impressed when given bed sheets on check in to make my own bed.


Enjoyed my stay. The beds are good and the room is spacious. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast was ok but I missed the water or orange juice.


The staff were exceptional. Very friendly and helpful. Just a couple notes for those wishing to stay: - bring your own padlock for lockers or buy one at the hostel. - also, SB is situated in a poorly lit area. The main entrance and building look nothing like the photos online. - The internal and external building feel dingy and rundown.


Good hostel overall, can't complain... Bathrooms could be better though.

We stayed in a private twin room which was spacious and clean. The only problem was the door out to the balcony didn't lock and so potentially people from the next room could come into ours via the balcony while we weren't there. There was a shower and a toilet that were not working while we were there for 2 days. The wine and cheese night was fun, and a great way to meet other people staying at the hostel. The breakfast wasnt very good compared to other hostels
