    Great kitchen and perfect location. There was free breakfast and WiFi. The WiFi didn't work during my fist two days as there were to many people but it got fixed on the third.

    Hands down the best staff of any hostel I’ve ever been to. Definitely a super social party hostel but everyone is super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. Really outgoing atmosphere and perfect place to meet people. Location is also perfect.

    Classic base hostel. Kitchen was unclean, fridge was rank. C**p wifi. Everything was very basic, so the price didn't reflect that. Staff were very helpful with all of our needs as this was in level 2 lockdown with travel being cancelled, happy to let us use phones and help us find information so really can't applaud them enough

    A classic Base hostel. Kinda dirty, 10 bed dorm was too small for the number of beds. The bar played music too loud for far too long into the night. It did the job for 1 night but I wouldn’t stay there forever!

    falta limpieza en todas las zonas. Cocina con pocos utensilios. El olor que hay en los pasillos es muy feo. Nuestra habitación la 112 muy ruidosa . Casi no se podía dormir por los ruidos de los bares. El precio pagado un poco elevado. No volvería a elegirlo
