Very spacious dorm rooms with single beds and not bunk beds. Good breakfasts. Did not spend too much time at the hostel as was out sight seeing, subway not far away. Enjoy my stay here

I was happily surprised to see the bathtub and after a long day of traveling it was a blessing to take a bath!

This is the second time I stayed here. The first time there was no bar so everyone brought their own alcohol and drank outside in the evenings leading to a great atmosphere and everyone hanging out together. The next time I checked in they had opened a basement bar and bringing your own shop-bought alcohol into the hostel was forbidden. The basement bar is dark and dinghy and the alcohol there is not exactly cheap, the whole atmosphere of the hostel was a love less communal and friendly :(

Ok hostel in good location. But is trying harder than it achieves. Internet is slow and unreliable, bar is a seedy rock hole, hot water in all bathrooms was unreliable/non-existent. Seemed to have a lot of issues with overbooking and being disorganised. Not very impressed.

Hey, Thank you for taking the time out to review our Hostel. We appreciate your input and will take all of your suggestions to help better our services. We have now changed internet providers so our internet speed is much faster. Our maintenance staff have also fixed all of our restrooms so they now run hot water immediately. We take pride in providing the best customer service so we hope to see you back soon and enjoy all of our improvements.

The hostel was nice, but not as nice as it seemed in the photos. The room we booked was very small, and as my partner is 6ft5 this was a bit tricky. The rest of facilities were good, though we didn't use the bar, the gym and the bag drop were helpful and the location was very good being so near the subway. Overall, it was good for what we wanted, which was a place to sleep and not much more, though I've heard good things about the bar from others.
