    I intended to only stay here for 2 nights, and ended up staying for 2 1/2 weeks because I enjoyed it so much. I love the atmosphere, and the staff and people staying here are great. Really clean kitchen and bathrooms.

    Lovely hostel in a beautiful old building. The common area is a lovely place to sit and has a balcony from which you can watch the hustle and bustle on the street below, plus a nice spacious kitchen. Could have done with more blankets on the beds. The bathrooms were nice and clean and showers were good. Staff were lovely, would come back 🙂

    Great location and good wifi. Very limited bathroom facilities. Average on pretty much all other fronts. Atmosphere was non existent but I’m sure that has to do with visiting in the winter instead of summer.

    By far the weakest hostel I stayed in on this trip. The decor is well past its best and could really do with a freshen up. The private rooms are not particularly well equipped. There was only a single power socket in the room, and given it was winter we needed this to plug in the storage heater. The washing facilities left something to be desired. The free unlimited WiFi almost never worked. The location of the hostel is superb and from the outside it is stunning.
