    Very clean, helpful and personable manager. I appreciated that the bathrooms were private and not the locker room type. Excellent location, decent beds considering they were bunk beds. Would stay here again.

    The hostel is clean, quiet and on a great location close to the city centre and nearby the coach or trainstation (5 min. walk). Free breakfast is simple, but fresh. Our host was friendly and helpfull, not all staff were as friendly. The private room, as said, is tiny with a bunk bed and a small sink. I never waited for the bathroom, which is nice. However, my biggest turn off was that the walls are made of carton. Which makes it quite noisy when you're trying to sleep and alarms go off etc.

    I have stayed 1 night in Celtic hostel, staff who work in the reception is lovely, bubbly, chatty and friendly. The room was quiet and clean. The cost of the bed in dormitory room was a bit pricey but rather than that everything was fine.

    The hostel is ok for a nights sleep if you plan on going out. The worst part was the fact there was two lockers for 8 people in one room. So its not secure as you have to leave a lot of your stuff out. Pretty basic but location is really good.

    Want to start by saying props to the one staff member who worked the whole time we were there. Clearly short staffed, there was never anyone at the desk. You were given a number to text when you needed somebody at the front desk. Only one baggage lock up per bunk. Shitty overall security. The shower had no hot water. Breakfast was toast with jam, cereal, and either apple or oranges. It’s cash only. Worst hostel I’ve stayed at. Would recommend you spend the extra money and go elsewhere.

    Was way overpriced for a night! Lots of space in the middle of the room! Should be lockers or cages under the bed. Could barely squeeze into the bathrooms for a shower.The girl working their was friendly! Nowhere In the bathrooms to hang towel/clothes! So definitely over priced
