    Just amazing. I can feel the bed lines are very clean, fresh and dry out of laundry. Central location. You can see the river and the castle throughout the window in bedroom. Very clean common area and bathroom. 100% recommend for anyone.

    Exceptionally clean, good atmosphere and facilities. Really enjoyed the option of a pod, which has a curtain, as it allowed me to go to bed early and not worry about turning lights off in the dorm. Very good value.

    Since the very second I stepped into this Hostel, I felt safe and cozy. Really nice guy call Emmanuel greeted me and then I was shown to my dorm. I like the safety and cleanliness side of it the most. Also, forgot to mention the view from my dorm room was just SO pretty. Worth every penny.

    Amazing comfy clean room with a cosy shared area with cooking facilities. The location was fabulous right in the city centre. Staff were super helpful especially Ricardo who gave us so many great recommendations in the city! Will definitely stay there again.

    I had a great one night stay at short notice. I had made the booking for the wrong date by accident. I contacted reception to say I needed a room that night and Ricardo was super helpful. He made me feel that it was absolutely no problem and gave me a warm welcome when I arrived. This was the first time I had used Bazpackers and I will definitely visit again in future. Thank you.

    This hostel has thought of everything. We found it extremely comfortable, clean and really liked the room layout. Plenty of space for your bags with plenty of tea and coffee. Very good value and would highly recommend especially if you’ve been hiking the trails.

    It is in the city centre, good access to local attraction s and facilities. However car park was an issue never explained during booking process. Staff are available if needed via telephone otherwise nowhere to be seen.

    Tiny room, the place in general is in a poor state and in need of urgent redecorating. Sound proofing is non existent and the cleaner tried to kick us out unsuccessfully early. Wasn't provided with the option to order towels so then was too late to get any organised. Zero customer service
