    We absolutely loved our stay, one of the best hostels we’ve stayed at in Europe! The staff were super friendly and welcoming (shout out to Elle, Hector and Javi). Excellent, clean facilities, and an all round fun atmosphere! Would recommend to anyone!

    What else can be said!? This was the best hostel experience I've had. If you vie to meet people around the world, this is for you. Yep, it's a party atmosphere hostel and a community/family experience. The staff supercedes expectations. Room was comfy, belongings felt secure and cleanliness was great. The free dinners were rather tasty and the outings organized by staff were a blast. I extended my stay by 3 days (and would've done more)! Many unforgettable memories and friends were made.

    This was one of the best hostels I’ve ever been to! From the second I walked in to 4 day’s later when I walked out. One staff member Jared was especially amazing. He helped me put on an American football game, a baseball game and was always there to answer any questions I had. The atmosphere is also amazing. They have trips planned in the afternoon, night and have free dinners to make it so easy to meet people! This hostel was recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint. Go here!

    I rarely leave reviews for anything but felt I could make an exception here! Amazing staff, organised events and location. From the minute I got to the hostel until I left, the staff made me feel at home. I was travelling alone and so was looking for a place to meet people. This is definitely the place to go if you’re in the same boat. Would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Thanks guys!

    The property is in a great central location close to public transportation, which made it an easy commute to and from the bus station. It is also within walking distance to the waterfront, shops, cafes and pubs. The hostel staff were super friendly and helpful. Upon arrival I was greeted by Jared who was very personable and provided a quick and efficient check-in. The property also has nightly activities (pub crawls etc) and daily free walking led by Clem was who was great!

    What a amazing place first time I have stayed in a hostel and it couldn’t have been better. There were so many activities and things to do every night all set up by the hostel so I did so much. Met some amazing people and the staff were just as friendly and made the atmosphere great. The free dinners were also delicious and Javi’s 5 star restaurant quality home made dish was amazing, it was possibly the highlight of the trip. Highly recommend can’t wait to go back and this time for longer.

    Lovely hostel with a great vibe. Perfect start to our travels across eastern Europe. Quite loud in the dorms but nothing out of the norm for a hostel.
