This hostel was absolutely great! Within walking distance of the main attractions. Loved the breakfast! The staff was really nice, everything was clean. Really appreciated the privacy curtains in the 12 bed dorm! Would definitely recommend!

Awesome place. Loved that there was a pub attached and the discounts on food and drinks there are great. The free walking tour picks you up at the hostel every morning which is great and a great way to meet people.

The noisy bar/receptions is perfect for those who want to party and meet people, but if you want some relaxing days maybe this is not your best option. The tip is: the 16 beds dormitory is much more comfortable then the 10 beds dormitory and provides you good structure to have a little bit privacy (nice large lockers, courting, etc.). So I definitely don't recommend the 10 beds dormitory. And the breakfast is pretty good, if you consider is already included in such a chip price.

Its a nice hostel, rooms are clean and good, quiet for sleeping, I liked the fact of having a privacy courtin on the bed in the 12 mixed dorm, lobby is a bar which is noisy all day and crowded sometimes at night, reception should be away from the bar. Free wifi works ok on bar, lobby and common room, but doesnt work on the rooms. Free breakfast is a killer I really enjoyed it. Location very good close to city center and just by the metro station, very convenient. Good value for money,recommended

Everything was great including "free" breakfast! But the bar has advertised daily offers to which we a group of 9 people had to fight for the bar to accept and acknowledge the offer. Later that evening we had drinks and the same bar server served us giving us very cut-down drinks. we didnt say a word to him or management but rather left to another place! Sad but true!

Breakfast is amazing - well worth it. The reception is in the bar which means it is loud ALL the time, but rooms are very quiet as not near the bar. Wifi only works in the bar area which is annoying as the bar is loud and you can't exactly think straight when needing to book onward journeys or research. Rooms are nice and bright and quiet.

One of the best chain hostels that I've stayed in, suprisingly homely feel that you normally only get in independant hostels. Bar was great with cheap good food (plus hostellers discount). Staff friendly :)

More like a pub with rooms than an hostel with a bar and common room... I didn't like the fact that they made me change room (2 night in one room, and 2 night in an other one) because they need the place for a group of people. The lockers on the first room were to small, but were perfect in the second room. Everything else was ok (clean bathroom, free breakfast, location near the center, ...)

Thanks for taking time to give us a review. Sometimes we get groups who book out whole rooms. We try and keep moment to a minimum. Sorry for your inconvenience. Enjoy your onward travels.

The reception area is one end of the bar, so it can get a bit rowdy at night. The 6-bed female room didn't have its own bathroom, there was one private bathroom with a shower shared by 2 of these 6-bed female rooms & you have access to the unisex showers. The lobby/bar area is busy at any hour so it is difficult to find seating for meals. The free breakfast is very limited. Wifi is only in the bar/chill areas, not the rooms. Fun vibe--met some awesome travelers! Good location RIGHT at metro stop

Hi, Thanks for giving us a review. Yes we do have a lively bar, where our guests get to meet locals in a friendly atmosphere.Our free breakfast includes 3 different cereals, bread rolls 2 different meats, cheese, fresh fruit, toast & jam, tea and coffee. We also have a cook breakfast available for a small charge. Our WIFI is only available in the bar area at the moment, but we are looking into getting it in the rooms as that is what people asked for. Enjoy your onward travels.

Hi, Thanks for the great review.

Surprised and annoyed the hostel was located within a bar. The "lounge" is in the upstairs area of the bar, so not a quiet place to lounge & plan at the end of an evening. The wifi was down during our whole stay, which I know can happen, but when travelling in an unfamilar country & you specifically choose a hostel with wifi, it was quite upsetting it wasn't fixed in a timely manner. Only 1 female shower was working, so had to use the unisex showers, which sucked. 1 good note, room was nice.

Hi, Thanks for taking time to give us a review. The wifi issue took longer to repair as we where waiting on parts. All up and working again. Showers are all sorted now too, hope you enjoy your onward travels.

I had the worst experience with their wifi connection. I rely on internet to do work so when a place claims they have wifi, I expect it to work. I had to go elsewhere and spend money on restaurants and coffee shops in the city in order to be connected. Not a good experience at all. The staff was not helpful at all and had little to no patience with everybody in the hostel. The facilities are average and the building is quite old. If you need wifi while traveling, this is not the place for you.

Stayed in the 10bed mixed dorm. Bunks were cheap squeaky ones, small lockers, good heating, no WiFi in rooms, awesome hot showers with great fixtures, only 3 PowerPoint's in room and all awkwardly located. Wouldn't recommend compared to their other branches.

Thanks very much for the review. We are in the process of renovating rooms at the moment as well as improving the beds. WiFi is not provided for the rooms at the moment but can be used for free in the public areas where we have a restaurant and a bar with great discounts for our guests available!

They offer free Wi-Fi but only on the bar downstairs, and it's not actually a good service because people from outside the Hostel can use it. Besides, you can't connect from your room.

Seemed like a bit of an older style compared with others in the St Christopher's chain. No curtains on the beds, but they're hugely sized beds which is awesome! Not great bathroom to people ratio but they're clean and good showers. Fantastic discounts at the belushi's bar downstairs. Location is a bit out of the central area but located 10 metres from a station so no biggy.
