    Perfect for the price. Excellent location, great staff, really secure. Only small issue is hard to park if you have a car, have to pay for street parking. And kitchen small and usually busy. But WiFi good and great for a stopover.

    Best location and friendly, helpful staff. A large equipped kitchen and space to lounge outside in the sun. Could do with buying new pillows for the beds but great value for money.

    We paid 30$ for a double room which was by far the cheapest hostel room we've found. Our stay was ok, the bed was a bit uncomfortable but other than that the room was ok. It had a heater and we even got towels :) The location of the hostel is amazing, the staff was okayish and the atmosphere was average.

    I had a good stay here, the staff is super cool and young so there often was some music and sitting together in the kitchen also enjoying a drink together. I liked this kind of atmosphere. The building itself is quite old and worn out but it was alright, all facilities worked well and kitchen was well equipped. The location is perfect.

    It’s an okay space for a couple days and if you need somewhere cheap. I found the bed to be uncomfortable so I didn’t get a great sleep. But I’ll give staff credit for being friendly. The location is great if you don’t have a car as parking isn’t ideal. It’s free in the evenings but you have to move it at 8am or go down and get a one hour free ticket so if you want to sleep in this gets in the way.

    Not the best but really cheap so you get what you pay for. It has everything you need, not pretty or clean but it’s there. Good location. But right by a loud nigtclub.

    Building is very run down. Bathrooms are not nice. No common room, only a tiny TV room. My mattress should have been replaces years ago. Kitchen felt dirty. Would not stay again. Good location, close to bus station. Free breakfast.

    When we checked we were told there was a mistake so we had to stay in a larger dorm, but the manager remedied this by giving us our own room, which would have been nice except it turns out it is a major party hostel and we got the best seat in the house to be kept awake all night (literally) by people drinking, yelling, singing, arguing, etc. Plus the security was non existent, one day we came in to find a strange man had walked in off the street and was in our room making calls. We left early.

    Room was dirty and smelled bad. The hostel is right beside a nightclub hat plays very loud music nightly til 3am. The kitchen is small and not very clean. Only two showers for the whole hostel. The staff is all volunteers and no one is ever at the front desk. Don’t stay here. The cheap price is not worth it.

    We were not given the room we booked due to 'overbooking', which we had not been told about before arriving. Wifi did not reach room, room freezing with broken heater, 2 showers for whole hostel as one was broken, no hot water when showering, light in toilet was broken, pillows were so flat you may not bother using it, whole hostel was dirty, chargers in room did not work, loud music from next door until 3am. Appalling hostel, not worth the money at all! DO NOT STAY HERE!!
