    Not a bad stay here, kitchen was generally clean as were the bathrooms and dorms. Bar next door was pretty cheap and did some fun activities at night. Only complaints are that it’s not a social hostel as there were no real spaces for it apart from near the kitchen but everyone was eating so was kinda awkward. Also only one dryer worked and it took ages so we were waiting around to wash for a few hours.

    Initially was not impressed by hostel as they put 2 people in a room with only 1 bed spare however once they corrected there mistake did enjoy the time at the hostel. The kitchen is small for the size of the hostel however there is a nice pub downstairs in which you can purchase food. There is WiFi in the rooms which is a bonus

    AMAZING staff!! Whilst our initial experience at this base was poor (no working AC, broken tap, unclean room due to long termers etc), the staff went above and beyond to help. We were moved for two nights from an 8 bed dorm to a 6 with working AC and was much cleaner. Then, for our last two nights we were upgraded to an en suite private room and given free dinner and drinks! Unbelievable customer service from Dougie, cannot thank him enough! However, hostel defo needs a refurb and maintenance.

    Hostel was in a great location, close to city centre. Unfortunately the lift was broken and the place seemed a little run down. There were no lockers in the room which was an issue. Lots of events over the week. Friendly staff who were eager to help.

    Very Good

    The hostel did what it says. I didn't find it particularly great for meeting people, I'm a solo traveller and very sociable. I've found other hostels to integrate guests more. I was put in a 4 bed room, my roommates all stayed in bed day & night watching their phones. In this instance, it would of been nice to have a good social space to hang out. This is lacking in this hostel (in my opinion). I was neither impressed or disappointed.

    Lovely friendly girl at reception at check in, friendly guys at reception at check out. Good location. Kitchen was absolutely disgusting, I’m surprised I didn’t catch a disease from cooking in there. It was truly vile, worst hostel kitchen I have ever seen. Do not stay here if you value cleanliness.

    Kitchen dirty, was here for a week and bedroom was cleaned once. Ideal walking distance to the city centre and if you’re poor you can get by but if you can afford it, defiantly stay else where.
