    I had an amazing time at Hostel Downtown. The location is brilliant, a walking distance to any and all places to see. The staff were all super friendly and always willing to help, recommend making the most of the free tours they were an awesome way to meet people and see the city. Special shout out to Brent and Katie, both were awesome hosts for the tours and parties, always smiling, always helpful and not afraid to get stuck in and make sure travellers have a great time. Thank you.

    Everything was perfect, except that in the room I was in, two of the lockers (which are under the bed) had detached lock hinges, making it impossible to use a lock with them. However, the room was quite secure anyway since a cardkey was required to enter the room. Bathroom facilities were exceptionally great. Spotless clean and small private rooms that are not shared with others when using them. Overall, a really great hostel. One of the best i've ever stayed in.

    Fabulous

    The dorm was quite spacious with 5 beds and I liked that they weren’t bunk beds. The room was clean and bathrooms were clean too. They have towels & locks which you can borrow for a deposit but they didn’t have a padlock the day I checked in and I had to manage without it. So best thing is to carry your own towel and lock just in case. The staff is helpful but they should be a little more courteous. They have a breakfast for €5 which is quite good!
