    Potentially the best hostel I've ever stayed in. Does all the little things right: free towel, really clean, nice staff. Also has possibly the coolest hostel common room ever with castle vibes and a fireplace. 10/10!

    Had a lovely stay at Bazpackers! The staff were super friendly and helpful, especially Riccardo, it was clean and well equipped. The kitchen was really nice and so was the main room downstairs. I really appreciated that it didn't have the standard hostel look with super bright colours and weird "travel" illustrations everywhere. The only thing I didn't like was how cold it was at night and in the mornings. I assume this was due to COVID preventative ventilation, but brrrr.

    This hostel was absolutely topnotch - I 1,000% meant it when I said that it's the nicest hostel that I have ever stayed in! The place felt downright posh, was very comfortable, the staff were awesome and the location was great. I loved it!

    Great little hostel, right by the Castle. All the amenities you need. Though the living room/conservatory space is handles only about 11-13 people (in normal times), so may be a bit of a tight squeeze when busy, once normality resumes. Off season, during a pandemic, was noticeably quiet and relaxed. Only negative thing I can say is that the beds were a little on the firm side for me.
