Parking is available on the street outside the hostel and is free but vehicles need to be moved every 2 hours between 9am and 5pm from Monday to Friday, evenings and weekends have no restrictions. We do not have our own car park due to our location but free on-street parking during the day is located just 200 metres from the hostel.

Latest Review

" Staff were pretty awful, didn't know what they were doing and weren't welcoming. Atmosphere was dead, Seen more happy faces at a funeral. Room was average. Overall it was a boring and not so good hostel. Wouldn't recommend it. "
