Staff was engaging and helpful, the building itself oozes character, the only criticism I have is that the common areas are quite confined though some may prefer a cozier setting, also the shower seems to only have two settings either Liquid Nitrogen or Lava, but that is really the worst of it. Great hostel, fantastic staff, cheaper than the nunnery and others you may be looking at, and located within a minute to a free tram that circles the entire city. You will not be disappointed.
Busy Busy Busy. If you are looking to party and meet new people, it is a great hostel. Its close the beach, lots of travelers, lots of shopping and lots of fun. If you want a hostel with a quieter and more mature vibe, I would recommend looking elsewhere. This is for a party hostel.
The Guy who runs it is a bit of a quirky fellow, but incredible helpful, insightful and does truly love his job, and it shows. Its about a Kilometer from the downtown core, which is perfect because you are away from the noise, but still a close stumbles home from the bar. I met some great people there, awesome hostel, would deffinenrly recommend
