    The staff was lovely and the location is great, but the facilities were lacking. The kitchen had only 2 finicky hotplates on which to cook, no recycling bins, bathrooms were on automatic lights with very short timers, and the bedding was cheap, with sheets folder over duvets instead of proper covers.

    While the staff and location were great. We ended up in a windowless, incredibly stuffy and hot interior room that I was not advised about when booking. This room had one light switch by the door and no bedside lamp, so you went into pitch darkness before even being in bed! The bed itself was horrid, you could feel every spring, it was incredibly uncomfortable and when combined with the lack of any true airflow we barely slept all night. While the staff were lovely, I wouldn’t stay again

    This place is not worth paying $30 a night. It’s in a good location and the staff are pretty nice but that’s about the only good things I can say about it. Dirty, weird smells, uncomfortable beds, faulty fire alarm which went off early in the morning and woke everyone up for no reason. Also they don’t have proper sheets on the bed which is really gross.

    The worst mattress I have ever slept on. The people who run the place are all good but the place itself is a bit of a dive and the atmosphere wasnt really there. However, I put a lot of this down to lockdown. I told them about the mattress and they said they were going to change it 🤞

    Hostel was bare and dirty, kitchen was terrible, the beds were very uncomfortable, the whole place had no atmosphere. The only good things about the hostel was the pool table, the hot showers, and the location right in the city
