Like some other reviewers, I am confused how this place has such good ratings. The room was alright, but nothing special. Both the hot and cold water failed on the second day. The hostel has zero atmosphere and is a very long way out of the centre of the city in a run down area, definitely not in the same place shown on the hostelworld map. When I stayed, in December, I was woken by deafening music at 4am from the local mosque.

An absolutely amazing place with a lovely relaxed atmosphere. The owner puts in a lot of effort to ensure you have a good time. I've stayed here twice now and wouldn't hesitate to do so again.

The location is brilliant, but my room was pretty ropy in places and the "24 hour reception" basically consists of banging and waving through a downstairs window until you attract someone's attention. If, like me, you're looking for a cheap private double room to crash in, I'd recommend you splash out an extra tenner and go to a proper hotel. But perhaps now I've reached the age of 30 I've just turned into a miserable old git!

It's further out from the centre than we were expecting. It also wasn't as sociable as we'd expected - saturday the downstairs bar was hired out for a private function. It has a very chainy feel to it - no real character of its own.

The mad dog shots evening was awesome, as were the other hostel social events.

A really attractive and quiet hostel - not reccomended for party animals, but it's not supposed to be.

Clean and cheap private rooms, but not much really distinguising about the place.

As another reviewer said, the reception is really nice and looks like a 3*, but the rooms are not so nice.

The luggage storage room was completely unsecured. They were also overbooked the first night, despite my hostelworld booking - I got the impression that this is a regular occurrance. However, the staff were friendly and the quality decent for a 2*.

Beds were remarkably comfy, despite being bunks. There are far too few showers and toilets. 10:30am checkout time wasn't very funny.

The music was far too loud in the bar - conversation is of course vital in a hostel and I dont want to shout just to talk to the person sitting right next to me. A very friendly place though and great fun.

It would have been good to have a secure locker, as anyone could gain access to the rooms.
