    I loved this hostel so much! It was incredibly clean and the staff were so friendly. This was my first hostel experience and I’m a solo female traveler so I was quite nervous, but I felt so comfortable staying here and it was so much better than the next hostel I stayed in. The curtains in front of the bed were so nice for privacy and keeping a quiet atmosphere! I’ll definitely be coming back.

    Great central location really close to the hub of bars & tourist attractions. Very close to public transport. Amazing staff! Super friendly and helpful. They organize a free event basically every night and there's a nightly pub crawl. Lots of opportunities to hang out with other people. Attached restaurant really convenient and affordable (and discounts for guests).

    One of the best hostel I've ever been! Very clean, well localized, great atmosphere and very security. They even allowed me to let my luggage there one day before my checkin! The only issue there was the price for dates near the new year.
