    Staff was very helpful with questions and directions. Hostel is right on the Main Street and a bus stop is just down the street a little bit. Great place!

    The location of that hostel is overwhelming. You just step out the door and see the TV tower and the red town hall. The building with a nice courtyard is a picturesque old house. The cleanliness is ok. Totally worth it's money!

    Very Good

    The location of this hostel is pretty good and the facilities are basic, but everything you need is provided. Also very clean too! Not the most sociable of hostels by comparison to other ones we have stayed in on our trip and the breakfast they provide (which you need to pay extra for) is pretty rubbish. However, we didn’t have a bad experience here and you can easily walk to the supermarket to get other breakfast bits.

    The room itself wasn’t bad and were quite spacious, but the bathrooms were disgusting. The showers had mould in them and there was no bench or shelf to put your stuff leaving you to put it on the mouldy ground. They were honestly the worst bathrooms I have seen in a hostel.

    Great location if you want to be in the centre and want to walk everywhere! However, the beds are not incredibly comfy and I woke up with bed bugs bites all over my legs and arms which was disappointing as I enjoyed staying at the hostel but this really let it down.

    Water pressure from shower is super small. Sound insulation is terrible, we can hear people chatting and walking through the aisle for the whole night.

    The only positive thing was the location is in a great spot and the staff are helpful. Otherwise it is dirty, showers are terrible and half of them don’t work. The noise is unbearable with noise coming from the bar or people in halls yelling from one end to the other and when approached staff they changed my room at 11pm which turned out to be just as noisy. Rooms get as hot as a sauna. You also have to buy a lock there as standard locks don’t work (refundable). I would not stay here again.
