    Only stayed for one night but was located in a central location, quick and easy walking distance to the shops! The bar area downstairs is quite nice as well if you're wanting a casual drink or dinner.

    The hostel felt very unclean. The bed sheets, pillow cases and covers all had brown stains on them. The beds were uncomfortable and rickety. They’re made of thin metal, so when the pub downstairs had music on, they shook uncontrollably. Very loud. The bathroom/shower area was rancid. Had baby wipe washes for the weekend. The communal area was also filthy and damp, made me feel very on edge. This was the only hostel I could book on such Short notice. Definitely needs an update and a deep clean.

    Our dorm was on the third floor and there was no elevator. The building was strange, scary, and in a very bad condition. The dorm, the bathroom and all other areas were very dirty. We didn't enjoy it and we wouldn't go back. Thankfully we only had to stay for one night. Otherwise, we would have cancelled the booking and left. The staff, however, was polite.

    I got bed bugs!! The facility was very unclean and there were cats in the lockers. I was not happy with this hostel to begin with, but to wake up with bed bugs was another level. I’ve stayed at many hostels and this was by far the worst experience I’ve had.

    There was a heroin band hanging in my bed, which I can only assume was left there from the previous nights occupant, which I can imagine was had to door up heroin in the bed. I can only question what type cleaning was done in this dorm the filling morning and the type of cleaners they have. I would like some management contact about this matter. Thank you. It was an unusual experience.

    Having stayed in a lot of hostels around the world, this scores mediocre in some categories and terribly in others. It's well-located, and fairly cheap, but the whole place is grubby, no atmosphere, poorly designed (the sound echoes through the stairwell, so doors opening and closing, or people making noise in the corridors is very loud). These are maybe forgivable for the price, but waking up to tens of bed bug bites all over, as I did, is not. I would not recommend staying here.
