Awesome location - walking distance to everything you need. Restaurants right outside and 1 block from main shopping street. Only 15 minute walk to the ferry. Room clean and nice bedding Would be nice to have lockers and own bed light and free wifi for entire stay

The staff seemed pretty disinterested, there was no common area except the kitchen which just felt too big. Felt like I was in a factory. Expensive. Wifi wasnt very good

Hi thanks for making time to leave us a review, Sorry to hear you thought the staff seemed disinterested as this is not the normal, as when read in previous review our staff always get a high rating. We do have a TV room and a chill out room and a large deck area in which guest tend to hang out and socialise and make new friends. We are just in the process too of upgraded our Wi-Fi to fibre optics in the New Year which is exciting for us. Enjoy the rest of your travels The Attic Team :)

Nice hostel. Excellent location and very clean. Staff could be a bit more friendly, there could be lockers and free Wifi. Otherwise perfect. Would recommend it.

Loves my stay here. Staff are friendly and very accommodating. kitchen does close at eleven but it's for cleaning. Rooms do smell sometimes but that the travelers and not the hostel. I had a great time and highly recommend staying at the attic.

Hi, Thanks for taking your time to leave us a review. We are ecstatic that you enjoyed your stay. We are very lucky to have a team that are awesome which are ready to help with anything the guests need. We do close the kitchen for cleaning and also for health and safety reasons and their are smelly travelers that we can't do anything about, but we do take steps to help other people so they don't have to deal with it. Hope to see you again. The Attic team :)

Pros: Great location, lovely staff, big rooms, great kitchen, and big bathrooms. Cons: They don't really do any themed nights where they get everyone together, there is no outlet for the top bunk people to reach, no color in the rooms so it's kinda prison-y. Also they have no lockers in the room. I wish we were put in a room with people who where staying as long as us so we could have met them, but everyone put in our room were only staying one or two nights at a time.

Hi, Thanks for leaving us a review. We do have very open and social common areas with a fantastic kitchen which is fully equipped. Sorry to hear you thought there was "Cons" to our hostel. We don't do themed night because we don't want anyone to feel that they can't just chill. It is something we are looking to do in the future though. We try to keep the rooms very neutral but we like to make the common areas very colorful and look lively. Hope to see you again! The Attic team :)

It was a great place, would highly recommend. Only issue was the lift which was ancient and broke down a couple of times in the weekend we were there, meaning climbing 10 flights of stairs.

Great location and security. Clean, well organized and staff helpful. No alcohol consumption past 11 pm keeps things from getting crazy. Nothing distinctive or special, but a safe, clean place to stay. Would stay again.
