    Nice hostel with good bar and pop up area to buy cheap toasties / burgers etc. Enjoyed the trivia night but did not get a good sleep as it was very loud very late into the night. Good hostel for a party but not for a chill.

    If your a fan of both weed and Amy Winehouse then you will like this place. The STAFF were kind enough to wake myself and other backpackers up by smoking weed and listening to Amy winehouse whilst they all analysed it like something off of X-Factor. However overall wasn't too bad, good rooms and facilities, was very disappointed with lack of parking. 6/10

    Fairly white while I was there, cheap drinks and food at bar but it closes very early. Staff were fine but not very sociable. Rooms were basic, no lock on shower and air conditioning was in timer so room could get freezing at night.

    beds we’re covered in blood and white stains, floors left your feet black, showers were awful. In general not a great vibe - very clicky. People were walking in and out no problem even when they weren’t staying there. Staff were nice enough but kept locking me out of my room (3 times) and would never really explain why. Breakfast was handy.

    This is without a doubt the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Absolutely filthy, rooms are vile they are 100% not cleaned every day by the looks of it maybe never cleaned at all. No lock on bathroom door, staff so rude & unfriendly, paid to stay in a 10 bed dorm with en-suite and was actually joined on to a 4 bed dorm with no door in between us and sharing a bathroom with them too. Was woken up to people in my dorm room having sex during the night and turned out to be a **** member- 100% avoid
