    This hostel has been one of my favorites! The staff is genuinely friendly and they would make you feel welcome. Facilities are in good conditions, everything works as it should be. Common areas are very entertaining with a pool table, and a full stacked bar with different activities and shows everyday. Its a fun place to be and meet people.

    I can’t fault this place to be honest. The people working there were really nice and the rooms seemed good for what you need :) I didn’t really spend time in the kitchen/communal area upstairs as I was only there for one night, so I can’t say much about that, but I just used the bar(naturally) downstairs which was great for socialising :D definitely recommend. cheers !

    Had a really great time here. The staff is super friendly and accommodating! We asked to switch to a private room due to an illness and they’re was no trouble with the swap. The staff was friendly and the having the bar downstairs is great. Plus a handful of locals go there too so you get a feel for the city too. Great location and easy access to City Center. Highly recommend. The cages in the rooms didn’t have any way to secure a lock, we took our chances. There are lockers in the hallway for $

    Good location right by the river and near shops/pubs/restaurants. Sits above a bar with live music every night. They advertised music bingo one night but they just skipped it. The guy who checked me in seemed busy/stressed, but it looked like there was a massive group using the bar at the same time and he was apparently covering both roles. Other staff seemed friendly. Decent place but I'd look elsewhere as a solo traveler.

    Rooms a little small and nowhere to lock your belongings up. But a clean place with a good atmosphere as there is a bar downstairs. And a bloody awesome BBQ restaurant next door that is definitely recommended! Yum

    Hostel was fine. Did the job. Mattresses were fairly uncomfortable and the room was only okay. Residence bar was a nice feature. Rooms were quite expensive but to be expected because of the Jazz Festival.

    Private room was okay. Could have been slightly cleaner. Dirt was pushed into the corner of the floor. We were disappointed with the noise of the place. We were aware of the ljve music but we're not told that it would be playing underneath our room till 12am.

    Stayed in a four bed dorm that was unbelievably small, could only have one person standing and couldn’t get to the door unless everyone was in their beds. Very simple breakfast, but free. Nice staff, discounts for drinks in the below bar.
