    I've stayed in this hostel numerous times now and have not been disappointed. The people it attracts are very friendly and inviting. But what makes the hostel are the staff, Kat at reception goes out of her way to make sure you're comfortable. Like literally anything I've needed she's sorted out for me. She makes the hostel feel like a home away from home. The bar staff are great too like Ciara and Lizzy that are very accommodating on goon and cheese requests. Would highly recommend this hostel

    Overall not a bad hostel. If you like to cook however this isn’t the hostel for you. The kitchen is so small and dirty i didn’t even want to be in there.

    Cheap for what you get. I was I'll out of hospital and I needed to go back in so had to call the ambulance. But while sitting on steps into reception in pain, all staff just continued on they're way without even asking if ok! Apart from this the staff were very helpful and friendly

    To be honest I am astonished this hostel has such a high rating. I'm no beginner when it comes to hostels, but this one has been one of the worsts. I stayed for 5 days and I never make a fuss, but here I complained twice and changed rooms during my stay and couldn't wait to get out. There's not enough space here to detail everything so in brief: unclean, unwelcoming, some unpleasant long-term residents who make you feel uncomfortable. I recommend upping your budget and finding sth in the centre.

    Dirty room with leaking sink that soaked our floor and took 3 days to fix. Showers and toilets had no soap to wash hands with. Kitchen area was tiny and corridors were dirty.
