    Great location, comfy beds, big lockers for storage. Great cinema room, incredible WiFi, good sized kitchen but it is annoying when the pizza shop use the hobs to cook on. About 10 minutes from greyhound bus stop. Would stay again!

    Dorm rooms in this hostel were clean and beds were comfy. Free breakfast is a big positive and there is plenty of choice. However, bathrooms and kitchen both need upgrading! Kitchen was very short on basics like cutlery and mugs. The showers were never warm and a lot of them were broken so you had to hold the shower head. Big thank you to Kai on reception for helping us change rooms because ours was right next to the bar and too loud! The bar and deals on pizza were good too :)

    Very Good

    Overall it was a little disappointing. The bathrooms were kind of gross and dirty which is probably what I would personally like to be the cleanest part of a hostel. The atmosphere was okay but I was hoping it'd be a bit more inviting and engaging but the activities at the hostel were not run very well as to get people involved and facilitate a great community experience. Our room was nice and had air which was nice, and some of the staff was very friendly. Okay place to stay.

    Positives: good location. staff were very friendly and informative. Free breakfast was a bonus, cereals, toast and fruit juice. Also get free use of gym genisis which is just round the corner. Negatives: cleanliness of the hostel lets it down, bathrooms are old & not very clean. For the size of the hostel the kitchen is small & most of the hobs and ovens don’t work. Make sure you take a shower before 7pm, we made the Mistake of taking a shower after 8pm and it was COLD!!!
