    Only stayed for one night, when we arrived at 11 the staff has us wait briefly, which was fine. We were in a room of 10 beds and it was nice how the beds had curtains and outlets in them. Seemed like a good location but about a 20 minute walk away from the main strip of bars.

    Our room (double room with twin beds) looked really nice and provided a comfortable stay for the weekend. Only drawback was that there was quite a lot of noice coming from the street, even though we were on the third floor. This was especially disturbing with the window open, only for the room not to become too hot and stuffy this was quite necessary.

    Secure and comfortable. Be aware that there are small flying bugs everywhere, in the bar and in the rooms. I came out covered in bites.

    An alright experience. Although the location was very nice, the facilities seemed relatively run down. My privacy curtain was falling apart, the washing machine broken and the bathrooms had no soap and was disgusting. Staff very nice.

    Much dirtier than I expected, I had to put my own sheet on the bed, mattress was filthy and there was a large snot-like smear on the wall in my bed compartment. Still waiting to hear back about whether the bites I have are from bed bugs. Shower was also disgusting, and you can’t adjust the temperature, it burned me one minute and was cold the next. A waste of €30. Bar and reception are lovely, seems like they focus much more on their outside image than their paying guests.

    I’ve stayed at many dirty hostels and It usually takes quite a bit for me to be bothered but this hostel was actually filthy. Mattress was brown and stained, stuff on the walls, showers were mouldy and rooms smelled so bad as there is no ventilation. Kitchen was unusable (sink filled with dirty cooking utensils, pots and pans and no useable brushes to clean them) and wasn’t visibly touched by a cleaner in the days I was there as the same rubbish was all over the benches. Not worth the money.
