    Solid hostel for the price, general clean and well kept, enjoyed the breakfast and staff very helpful. Showers were really warm and beds were comfy. I was in the shared dorm and for the £15 or so per night it was good quality that you could get a good night sleep

    The storage facilities in my room (12 dorm mix) had 12 very small lockers and one big locker. I tried locking my small locker, but you could still open it when was locked. Besides that the bathrooms were mostly clean and the staff was really nice and helpful.

    The staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was clean. The bathroom was clean. But the building itself needed a lot of repair. The kitchen was very dirty. Dishes clean though. There was a bed in front of the fire escape. No one answered the door when I tried to check in so I was left standing in on this questionable street by myself until one of the guests finally answered the door. The whole place definitely needs a major major face lift.

    Not a hostel for the faint hearted! A solo female traveler, I was put in an 8-bed dorm with 7 men and the beds had no curtains or privacy despite what the photos and description promise. 'Continental breakfast' is a stretch; but cheap white sliced bread and 'jam' do seem the norm in hostels. I paid €45 for one night which is too expensive for what it is. Alas, it was the only hostel left. On the plus side, the staff were helpful and friendly and the location is nice - not central though.

    Okay so the location is okay (near bars/convenience shop) but about 15 minutes south of the main bus/walking tour/city centre so not really ideal. Rooms are really run down, dumpy, lockers are super small (barely fit a backpack). My main issue is that most of the people there are working there so the atmosphere is more of a home than an adventurous/travel vibe.

    When the taxi pulled up to the building I said the whole area looked sketchy. The building was dirty and run down. I went inside and checked in and got bed assignment, went to the room and someone was in the bed. The room was cramped, dirty, gross. Went to reception, waited 20 minutes, checked out the kitchen, toilets, creepyem kept walking by staring at me. Entire experience was awful. I did not feel safe AT ALL! I got online, booked a safe hotel room and left. Paid for a room I never used.

    Absolutely and utterly appalled. I went to check in on the night and had no way of getting in, nobody answered the door or the phone number provided on the website. I was left to sleep on a Bench for the remainder of the night. I could have been killed. I am taking to social media to highlight the danger of booking your hostel. Also you proceeded to charge me for the bed.
