    Had an amazing stay at base, the staff were very helpful, especially mike who went out of his way to answer any questions i had about the local activities. The cleaners did a spectacular job at keeping the place clean. Top marks

    Great amount of space in the dorms even in a 16 bed, with comfy beds and big windows. Good sized kitchen with plenty of appliances and room for socialising but only one set of hobs was working properly, obviously the bar next door isn’t classy but it was good fun with a generally good atmosphere.

    My experience was pleasant. I wouldn’t say the stuff were particularly nice or rude, however the facilities in general are pretty good. The rooms have a lot of space. There’s also balconies off (most?) the rooms. There’s a bar right next to the hostel so if you don’t mind loud music as you go to sleep or if you like to party then you’re good. You also get discounts at the bar, which is nice!

    Didn't feel secure because someone stole our bag of food from the fridge on the first day and staff at the hostel said it had happened to other people from random people walking into the hostel. Their was never any washing up liquid in the kitchen so a bit gross. Facilities not great but the staff were helpful and it's pretty cheap.

    In a room with 8 people there were only 4 outlets so that we could charge our phones, you basically had to arrive first. The ceiling was low and you couldn't sit on the top bed

    Although in a good central location this hostel was not very clean, particularly the kitchen with many items not working. The bathrooms on the top floor were clean but smelled of damp. If you are on the side of the hostel next to the bar it is very loud. The bar also were not very hospitable to guests, with many people getting chucked out for no clear reason.
