Great, relaxing bar on roof is a big seller. The walking tour of the city that leaved from the hostel is also very good for money. Hostel is right beside the metro line so you can get anywhere with ease

This hostel rocked.............As I walked up the godzillion steps to the entrance I wasn't too sure what to expect. But from the second I stepped inside I was made feel welcome, was given help and info on the city and hostel. All the staff are great fun and friendly. The hostel is the ideal size to meet and interact with other guests, and the hostel also put on the likes of Pubcrawls, fancy dress nights etc. Ask Montana for a free back massage!! I can't recommend this hostel enough....

DO NOT STAY HERE. This hostel is a ****hole. The guys behind the desk that dealt with me couldnt speak English. They didnt even have maps. The key cards hardly worked....my room mate even had to sleep in a bus station one night as he couldnt get in.Although check out is at 10am, it was pretty much one second past 10 and I was told to leave.If you do wanna stay at a st.christophers stay at the village because this one is riduclous. Oh and every toilet is always blocked up. DO NOT STAY HERE

When i was there it was getting renovated which ment the place was really untidy with scraps of wood and paint everywhere. Some builder started drilling at 8am on morning outside my room. The builders were all Irish, but there was one little aussie bloke who just wanted to lay my female friend. A nice kitchen but thats it. The reception was shut for half of the day and all in all the hostel was a dump. DO NOT STAY HERE

Thank you for your comment, unfortunately the building is quite old and we are unable to renovate. We do have cleaners in there periodically through out the day to help maintain and keep it clean.
