    There was only one staff member who let the experience down! But other staff were lush! The atmosphere is really chilled, tho I wasn't there when it is busy. I firstly stayed in room 8 which was as cosy as you initially expect from a hostel however room 11 had a really boney mattress. But the price is great, considering they also supply breakfast!

    Decent facilities, shower on floor was filthy downstairs were nicer! Solo traveller, I was there on a Saturday night didn’t seem like anyone was up for going out. Went to another hostel called NosDa, was easier to meet people and live bands were on. I’d recommend staying there for atmosphere and here for a quiet night sleep.

    The room was fine for a place to sleep, toilets were dirty and staff weren’t particularly helpful in when checking in.

    You get what you pay for- I selected the cheapest hostel I ever saw, and got the facilities I expected. The mattress was uncomfortable, with every spring palpable, and the pillow added half an inch. The included breakfast was OK.

    The cheap price was definitely reflected in the facilities. The room was large but needed a good clean. The 2 bathrooms are shared amongst most (or all?) people and also need a clean and repairs (one had no toilet seat or paper towel dispenser). The shared showers (2 stalls for each gender) were on the main floor, which is unfortunate as the rooms are on the floor above. I didn't have breakfast as my roommate saw a dead mouse on the kitchen floor the day before. The staff here are great though!

    Not good. There is only ONE PLUG in the room so you can't charge your phone at night. There are VERY few facilities (toilets and showers) so but the time I could shower it wasn't clean at all. I moved the furniture in the room and it was DIRTY. Didnt like the ambiance. Its a good 20 mins walk from the centre.

    The shower was moldy, the toilet was blocked for 2 days straight (stuffed with tissue and faeces). The atmosphere wasn’t friendly people kept to themselves and the kitchen was disgusting! Witnessed someone cutting raw chicken on the countertop! My bed was lumpy and I could feel the springs and the bed above mine I found a dead bedbug. The walls are hallow so you can hear everyone and everything! worst experience I’ve ever had. Even for the price its not worth it. The staff wasn’t friendly either
