Sits above a nice pub so location wise you have everything there. Rooms are clean and great, shower and toilet facilities not so much but do the trick. You have to hire towels and the room key is communal and left behind reception, but you are provided lockers. Wifi works in all rooms and the breakfast is ok.


I stayed in a private room with bathroom and it couldn't be better for a hostel. We booked for 2 people but it actually fit 4 in our room, so there was plenty of space. Very clean, organized, helpful staff and great atmosphere. Breakfast was ok and bar could get loud at night. Cons : wifi barely worked in my room, only 1 power outlet in the room (hard to charge phones and cameras at night) and no lockers in the room. Overall it was great and if stay there again.


No lockers inside the rooms, and the rooms were a bit of a tight squeeze. Otherwise really couldn't complain. Great location, on a great street - close walk to all the sights. Atmosphere at the hostel was fun and friendly. Good food and drinks (cheap too). We stayed in for dinner one night too - definitely recommend.

Great except I don't like that there is only one key per room, it is not safe if the last person out doesn't lock it. Need a key per person!
