Loved our stay at The Bulldog! Stayed in an 8 bed allgirls room and it was very clean and felt safe. Sockets and lights by each bed was great, also nice with separate bathrooms for shower and toilet in the room (makes for less of a queue). The staff were friendly and the bar downstairs was great! Really nice atmosphere. Breakfast beat all our expectations. Best part was still the location. Can't beat it. We had a great time and are looking to return soon, will def stay here again!

Carpet in the rooms. Heavy smell of smoke in the bar (where the breakfast is served). No kitchen available. No common area, there's only the bar but there's the smoke and you are compelled to spend.


I had a great stay at The Bulldog. It's located directly in the Red Light District and within walking distance from many points of interest. The best part of the hostel was the lounge that was exclusively for use by the hostel guests and their friends. The beds were comfortable. Make sure to bring a lock for your locker- one of my friends had some of her things stolen. The staff were very funny and always smiling. Food in the lounge was good!


Great breakfast. Bar downstairsis good and coukdnt be heard upstairs in our room. Socket and light at each bed. Could have done with a stool or similar to put things on in the shower. Great location in the red light district.
