    I arrived at early hours of the morning, the manager / owner was very polite and helpful from the first day all the way through to the last day of my stay. The people that was staying here while I was have been here for a few months but from the first day I felt included and felt comfortable. The pool was always clean too! I would definitely stay here again and also recommend it to anyone! It’s cheap and cheerful!

    Owner is a lovely guy and helpful. Showers are nice and clean. Kitchen lacking abit and is small. Only issue I had with this place is it's full of bums sat around the tables at the back all day and night everyday just doing nothing.

    The gentleman who owns the place was nice but that’s where it stops. Worst hostel I’ve stayed in cleanliness wise. Mess everywhere, scum in the bathrooms and the kitchen was full of mess old food and flys. In a nice quiet area but it’s a working hostel so no atmosphere and people seem to just doss about all day. Go else where for value for money
