    Lovely little quiet hostel. We stayed in the private double room. The garden is wonderful, you can have your breakfast outside if sunny. Staff was very friendly, our stay was great. Will return

    This is one of my favorite hostels I've ever stayed in. After long days, it feels like you're coming home. It's located between two different bus stations, is across the street from the Meadows, and is comfortable and clean. While it is a little dated, this made it more relaxing for our group as we didn't feel like we were strangers staying in a hotel. The shower was a little finicky, but it all worked out and was absolutely an incredible place to stay.

    A great hostel. Helpful staff, a nice room with only four beds. It’s not too far into the old town, but if you don’t want to walk there’s a bus stop right around the corner.

    Not like in the photos at all! I had booked a female dorm bed at Argyle. I got to the room and it was a tiny 8 sqm room with two bunk beds. The girls in the room apparently live there long term because the whole room and floor was covered in their bags and clothes. I would have needed to sleep with my bag in my bed to fit in there. It was very dirty in there too. Luckily the let me leave with full refund.

    Honestly the worst place I've ever stayed in the world (and I have stayed in some sub par places). We were immediately met with hostility when we checked in, shouted at by a horrible old man at reception who was looking for an argument, then called names by him as he wondered off. There was a crackhead in the toilet when I went to use the shower that had come in off the street and we didn't feel welcome or safe at all. Would never stay here again even if you paid me.
