Really great hostel, staff are really friendly, bathrooms are bright and clean, kitchen is good
I'm not sure I can say anything bad about BBTB as I had such a great stay there! Staff were really friendly and helpful, the nightly trivia was great fun and was a great way to get to know people. Bathrooms were pretty good and each bed had a shelf and small but adequate locker. My only complaint would be that the dorms need more plugs. The hostel is really near the bus station and Port of Airlie and is a ten minute walk from town. Would definitely recommend! Wish I could have stayed longer!
Staff in Dfeel were really friendly and helpful during my stay, always smiling and cheerful! The location isn't as central as other hostels but its an easy walk to all the sights. The room was clean with a locker, plug and light for every bed and the shower was amazing! The only downside is that there's not really a common area here so it might be hard to meet other travellers. Otherwise, Dfeel is a great place to stay!
Staff in Wickham Retreat were really helpful and friendly. The room was bright and clean, it included free breakfast and free foods like pasta and rice. Shower and toilet facilities could do with some improvement, near my room there was only a shower so you had to walk through the kitchen to get to the toilet. That bathroom had no soap and was generally a bit messy. Location wise, its a bit further out of town but only a short walk or you can get the free CAT bus. More for long term stays
I only spent one night at Haven so didn't get to explore it much but it was only average. The room was pretty big but there were no lockers and my sheets had holes in them and the pillow was covered in stains. Both towel racks in the bathroom were broken so there was nowhere to hang anything. No soap provided in the bathroom and the lights above each bed didn't work either. Not an amazing hostel.
I only stayed one night in Nomads so didn't really get to spend too much time there. However my stay certainly wasn't amazing. There's only a few showers and toilets per floor which are always busy and lacking in toilet paper. The floor in the shower room was also a death trap when wet as it was ridiculously slippy! The kitchen was tiny and messy when I stuck my head in. My room however was really clean and nice. Not the worst hostel I've been to but not that great either.
I really enjoyed my stay at The Nunnery. The building is a bit old so can look a bit run down in places but the great staff, great atmosphere and free breakfast make up for this. The tram runs right past the hostel so its very easy to get to and also really close to lots of great bars and cafes and not too far from the city centre either. The staff were all really friendly and organised a great pub crawl and there was also a free sausage sizzle. Would definitely recommend!
I expected Gilligans to be a non stop party hostel but in fact was pleasantly surprised that it was a lot more relaxed than I envisioned. They could do with more toilets on each floor as if someone is using the bathroom in your room, you just have to wait until they're finished. Staff were ok but didnt really give me any info when I checked in on any of the facilities. Best part was the free meal with the purchase of any drink.
Great location, great staff, really clean but needs more plugs in the room
Great place to stay, lots of stuff always going on and the kitchen was fantastic. Definitely need more plugs/sockets in the rooms though as we only had two for eight people! Also, there should be an area to store luggage for free when you check out!
Railway Square was a really nice place to stay, really clean and modern! However it could definitely do with more plugs/sockets in the rooms, perhaps one near each bed. The storage lockers were also expensive which was a pity

The hostel was pretty good although my room was quite messy because some of the other guests left their stuff everywhere. The reception was closed when I checked out but thankfully the staff refunded my key deposit when I posted back the key.
Great location, really friendly and helpful staff and a great atmosphere but could definitely do with a good clean!
Great place to stay, really nice rooms, staff are very friendly and helpful.
Great place to stay! Really comfy beds, hot showers, storage lockers and boxes, great food and bar, lots of fun events. Location is really close to shops and restaurants too. Definitely recommend Loki!!
We booked into this hostel for one night. However when we turned up, the doors were locked, no one answered and we had to stay elsewhere. when we checked our email, the owner had emailed to say the hostel had been booked out by 10 people despite our reservation. He did however offer to put us up elsewhere and pay the difference but by this time it was too late. We also lost our deposit although we contacted Hosteworld about it but never got any reply.
Arrived here late in the evening after a flight from Mexico and it took a while for the taxi driver to find the place. The hostel itself seemed quite nice but seemed very quiet even though it wasn´t that late. Our room was quite nice and we slept really well. We had to leave early the next morning so we didn´t really spend much time here. The hostel itself is quite nice and the staff were very helpful but it didn´t have much atmosphere when we were there.
Cheers for the pint Dave!
