Great wifi, kitchen, and friendly staff! Right in the heart of the city. Rooms and bathrooms are very clean. Lockers are for hire which is a bit frustrating. Rooms got really dry at night when heater was used, like really dry. It was weird...

Functional & friendly. Larger than others I stayed at. Little security apparent on ground floor corridor apart from swipe access to rooms but otherwise enjoyable

This is a great hostel in a central part of town. The staff are friendly and full of good advice. The cafe attached is modern and the decor is cool and eclectic. The rest of the building could do with a spruce up, the bathrooms are a bit tired lack bench space and didn't seem quite clean, the dorms could do with a freshen up too and some more plug sockets for charging things. The kitchen is big and fairly well equipped although despite signs up saying recycle there were no bins for recycling!

Tidy, clean, central location, limited parking, quiet. Nice double bed in the room (I got a private room). Would consider staying there again. Cafe was being rebuilt as I was leaving but should be fixed soon.

Good place, very central. Nice room with TV & ensuite, although when I tried to open the window in the bathroom to let the steam out the window nearly fell out of the frame & I had to try & wretch it back into place. Odd that this had not been fixed.

This hostel is relatively empty, which is great if you just want to read quietly and be left alone. Staff are very courteous. The facilities are poorly maintained, with broken locks on several of the bathrooms and showers, as well as toilets that spray water everywhere when you flush them. Verdict: not bad if you want a quiet place and don't mind broken fixtures.
