This is the second time that I am staying at this hosttel. That says I found it so good that I came back. Next time I am in Sofia i will stay here again. Within walking distance of everything and the hostel also organises a pub crawl ,and tours to the mountains and monastery outside the city. Amazing breakfast.

Very big hostel. No character but very clean and everything is well organised. Especially that you have to give a deposit for dishes because of thieves experiences from hostel stuff. Next to beach (50m). A great generator beside the sleeping rooms disturbs sleeping (female dorm). Handy, easy and uncomplicated.

A converted NHS hospital with showers only in the morgue basement,wi-fi golems, and exotic residents makes this hostel one of those "best live Victorian London" moments. 100% goes to the staff and I have extended my stay by another 4 days. (Bad weather and closed airports were not the reason)

The management clearly view guests as people and not as money. Each bunk has curtains around it offering privacy for changing and sleeping. On check-in you receive two cleanly laundered sheets and a disposable hygenic pillow-case. At breakfast ladies in uniform run round collecing plates and cups and then wash them in the kitchen for the next users. Other hostels also do this but usually for twice the price and not as centrally located. This hostel is next to the British Museum....

Just a little bit extra makes a difference to a b'packer on a long trip. Like free laundry, a wider selection of breakfast than other hostels and longer than most (5 hours). Since Liverpool has now improved as a tourist location this hostel is worthy of a 3 night stay to see all that the city can offer (Tate Liverpool, Beatles, Mersey Ferry, Museums and Galleries galore (slavery, emigration, Walker, FACT) football stadia and great clubs / live music.

Hostel staff try to treat guests the best and this one does, but with 1 exception. Never mix long-term residents with travellers. A fatal mistake! I was given a room with 1 other occupant - a long termer who did his laundary at night and hung it all over the room, who kept his food under the bed attracting flies, who read his book late at night leaning out the window with his beer and cigarette (illegally smoking)and who woke up very early making a noise to get ready for work. Cleanliness loss.

As a wandering Irishman all I ever wanted was a warm and cozy bed and a hot shower - and this hostel offers this and a lot more. I used it as a base for 11 days to see Santiago, the nearby sea towns and resorts and the montain ski resorts and hot springs. It is the cheapest, it is the warmest, it is within walking distance of all the day and night attractions and museums. I was given the best advise on local soccer, ballet, movies, laundry and Coffee with legs. Stay here for home away from home

Tour-books tell you cannot find black-cabs to go south of the river after dark. Many incorrectly believe this to be a safety issue. The truth is they are protecting it from tourists. Hoot-A-Nanny is no exception. Great live band, open till 3am, fully equipped kitchen with supermarkets 5 minutes away clean showers and sheets, and a key for all doors in-case you go to Brixton Academy (top London gig venue). Clean common room, leather arms-chairs, wide-screen TV, balcony over the beer-garden.

next to the cemetery, far from the city center, double booked beds means you are woken in the middle of the night, no luggage lockers, many extremely young tour groups (8-14) means you are actually limited to breakfast times as they are given preference etc etc

Half-way between heaven and hell is the best way to describe this - heaven being the hostel that offers all and more including the best bar and entertainment I have ever had in a hostel but hell being the neighborhood which is rundown and boring so maybe stick indoors and only go out in the day.

Watch out for bad staff ! A hostel is a bed and when staff wake you up at 3 am to check for free beds (because their records are messed up) then the hostel is not worth returning to. I was in a 4 bed room with 2 people - one other and me. At 3 am the light when on and a staff member asked if there were free beds in a loud voice. Clearly 2 free beds. Then 2 people were escorted in and the sheets changed on the beds. Half an hour later and the lights were still on. Not nice at all !

If you want to be within walkimg distance of everything then this is the place. However the showers overflow a bit and the price of a beer in the bar is the same as the price of a bed - a refelection that this is a hotel and has a limited number of dorm rooms as well as many single/double rooms.

The only problem in this hostel is that other guests, such as Spanish students, are frequent drug users. This spoils the atmosphere in the common / TV room where they smoke. This is also against the law but the security have problems getting them out each night.

The rooms were cleaned every day but the toilets and showers were not. The toilets do not have locks on the doors and the seats are broken. Security is bad as often people would stay extra nights without paying or would have guests in for the night. This created a bad atmosphere with the hostel staff. They were very helpful but the situation is the owners and not theirs - many of the staff are also backpackers just traveling and earning something while doing so. However the location is great, the character is great with lots of fun such as a snooker table and large communal area. I could recommend this hostel but be wary ....
