    Absolutely the best set up for everything including breakie and service. I think the online ad needs updated with a location icon and phone contact.

    The best thing about this place is the Irish girl at reception. She's very nice, warm, and welcoming. Other than that nothing very impressive about this place, it's very old and run down. The location is great though if you wanna party.

    When arrived I was told there was room available for myself and my partner and that there was no booking on the system. I was told it was hostel world’s fault not the hostels. Was very stressful and not an ideal start to trip. We ended up getting a room after a while and staff apologised.

    The facilities were terrible. I really liked the hostel and the atmosphere - very chilled, great vibe. But our private room had no sheets/towels. I thought maybe we had to pay extra but the room actually just wasn't made. The clock had no batteries, the fan was broken, and the lights on our side tables were not plugged in and HAD NO LIGHT BULBS. Nothing worked. The shared bathroom was fiddly and the other person locked us out of the toilet one night when they forgot to unlock it on their side.

    Worse room ever. The smell was so unpleasant we could sleep because of it. The bathroom door doesn’t lock. Quite disappointing. Don’t waste your money.

    Leaking toilet in dormitory number 3 . Every time you flushed the toilet , the sewage would flood the area and stink of urine and faces!!! Total health and safety hazard and neglect!!! I left after one night. Since my flight was canceled I phoned the hostel to change my booking dates- it didn’t happen! I was promised that someone will meet me after hours- it didn’t happen - felt vulnerable, first time in GC, had to go to sleep in only open hotel, expensive!!! This place should be closed down.

    We got there and they told us our booking had been taken by somebody else. They told us bad luck despite the fact we had booked through hostelword. No refund was offered and we then had to pay over $600 to find last second accommodation. Do not book this place!
