To much noise, to dirty. The bed makes a huge noise ewach time I jump in! Bathtoom was poor and with a balck hole on the wall. Only Price and location are good.


Was in this hostel in November 2014.Hostel average. Rooms and cleanliness, want to be the best. It was very cold. Settling strictly from 2 pm .All very mediocre. Except for the location. (Very convenient)


Location wise this is central but there is no excuse for filth

A comfortable and basic stay. Friendly and approachable staff. Only drawback was the windows in the room didnt have any blinds/curtains. A decent place to stay for the rate charged.


Horrible bathroom and bad beds.


There was no receptionist on arrival, but the bar staff at Walkabout the bar quickly got someone and they were cheerful enough, however, there weren't any maps and no tour or directions to a common area or anything. The hallways were disgusting with too many stains and although it says there is loud music until 1am, people outside made noise until much later. If we can't sleep well due to noise, at least don't let the light in, get some better curtains that cover the windows.


The worst bed I've ever had in a hostel. We could feel every spring. The staff were not present for check in and I had to go up to the bar a couple of times to get anyone to see us. Very noisy from the bar downstairs, don't underestimate how much this will disturb you.


Brilliant if you're young and not staying for long. Basically good if you just want a bed and somewhere to crash. Staff very laid back. Despite being on the top floor we were kept up by the noise from the nightclub below until 6am because also heard the cleanup of bottles, and a fight. The windows didn't shut, nor did the blinds. If they had have done i'm sure the noise wouldn't have been as bad. Fire alarm went off in the middle of the night waking us all up. Not very clean, walls stained
