    I like the cleaning staff, really friendly. I like the kitchen facilities and laundry. I like the shower room. Good water pressure. The cleaning could use some improvement particularly during this coronavirus situation. They really didn’t disinfect door handles or sterilise the place. The beds could use privacy curtains. I didn’t like the way they kicked out people during the crisis and used the government as an excuse. We all read the news. We all knew it wasn’t entirely true.

    Wouldn't go back, one if the staff members was very rude and i kept having to change my room. I'd stayed at the hostel before but since then they charge you for leaving your luggage. It just felt like they wanted every cent possible from you. Atmosphere was flat, especially since I didn't stay in one room for long.

    Overall unimpressed. They pack them in like rats. Beds are set up so you can literally throw your leg over the guys next you in the other bed. Wierd set up, 5 bunkbeds right next to each other. Bathrooms are super cramped too. Price was the best in town and I can't complain about that.

    I never got to stay here. After having it booked for months I received an email a couple of weeks before my trip telling me it was being refurbished and that they could switch me to their sister hostel Clink 261. We were satisfied with the trade until a few days later when we found out Clink 261 wasn't open for Christmas, forcing us to find another hostel for the two days of the 24th and 25th. Note - the staff at Clink261 are in no way to blame for this, they were wonderful and helpful.
