    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in, comfy beds with great curtains blocking or the light. Breakfast buffet was nice and changed every day what they served. Amazing staff willing to do anything you need. And feels like a hotel when you arrive rather than a grotty hostel!

    This was our 2nd time staying here because we had a really good experience the 1st time. Loved this hostel! Super central, friendly English speaking staff, clean rooms and chill social atmosphere. It’s central and a 5 min walk from everything. There were only 2 things that weren’t perfect- the staff got our payments confused more than once and if we hadn’t corrected them we would have accidentally been charged more. The cleaners come in (10-14) and aren’t considerate of those resting in the dorm

    There is no possibility of early check in despite multiple people checking out and free beds overnight. This a hostel but it’s new and they act like it’s a hotel. The room is nice, showers are great and breakfast looked nice. There’s a pool with 2 sun loungers. However the staff are awful. Witnessed multiple arguments with guests checking out as they tried to overcharge. No flexibility on check in for anyone as they cba cleaning the rooms. People stay at hostels due to flexibility. Overall ok

    Great hostel, amazing location and the staff were lovely. However the bathrooms were never very clean, especially towards the end of the day. They need to be cleaned all the time due to the amount of people using them. Overall a good experience.
