    Great hostel! Really clean, with a well equipped kitchen and nice tv room. I made quite a few changes to my booking but Carl was very patient and sorted it all out for me. The staff were brilliant. Definitely recommend this place.

    This hostel has an amazing location, it was two minutes from the train station, and in the heart of the city. The staff were friendly and they kept the place clean. It was almost empty when I stayed there, and the building is sprawling, so it was almost a shock to find other people. The wifi only works in certain spots, so I had to do a lot of walking since its a huge building. The weekends are supposed to be filled with school groups, so it probably has a very different atmosphere then.

    Very Good

    15 May 2018
    The biggest thing of note is that the only other females I saw were behind the front desk. No females in rooms, bathrooms, showers, kitchens, anywhere, which is a bit unnerving, especially as most of the men in my room were 50+. Everyone was quite friendly and lovely, but something to note. Small lockers under bed, enough to fit a laptop and camera but not much else. Showers were clean but had no hooks. Locked bag storage after checkout, very secure. Fantastic common areas with kitchen and TV.

    Was full of older long-term residents and atmosphere was basically non-existent, the kitchen was good and beds very comfortable
