    Key cards periodically didn't work on the doors, which made coming and going sometimes very loud and frustrating. But incredibly clean and wonderful location for everything!

    The place was nice enough, but all the murals were a bit creepy and gave the place a very dark and oppressive feel. The decor needs to be updated. The free breakfast was great by hostel standards and the water pressure was surprisingly good.

    We stayed two nights, excellent location to shops, bars. It has a large common space which was nice. We had to leave early before the kitchen opened and staff was happy enough to let us in before it opened. Security lockers under bed which were great.

    Not as great as the reviews led me to believe! The room was so small and cramped that I couldn’t easily get in and out of my backpack. There was a triple bunk bed which had three lockers under it - obviously too small for any normal luggage so the occupants of those beds had to leave their stuff in when little space there was. However, the rooms were my only complaint, facilities are nice and clean, staff friendly, good breakfast and the lounging areas are also quite nice!

    Great location, great amenities! I love that my 12 person room had a connected shower & toilet. The only downside... this is definitely a hostel for large groups of touring teenagers. If you’re not prepared for teenage shenanigans this may not be the hostel for you.

    Very Good

    Doors are still horrible . No way you can sleep through the whole night, every single person entering the room your in is a big slam on the door! Really wakes you every single time. If you are in a big dorm - forget it, no sleep for you! Hotels should stop with the 20+ dorms , it’s just crazy.
