    We had the best time staying here, even though we had our room of 8 bed changed to 2 rooms of 4 beds, it wasn’t a problem, the rooms were ok, just what we needed and the staff were lovely, specially Poli, he made our stay 100% much better. In general the hostel was clean and had everything you may need.

    Unfortunately, in my room there was a girl, who was a long term resident at YHA & she acted like she owned the room. She made it impossible to sleep in after 6 am to 7am. We slept in train carriages & Her bed was at the end of the carriage. She'd constantly come in&out of our room, to her bed & it sounded like a hurricane passing through, she'd throw things around, making such a racket. One early morning, she left her mobile charging & it kept ringing over&over forever. It was so stressful.

    This was my first YHA hostel I've stayed in and it was okay. The staff were friendly and breakfast was cheap if you wanted to hang around until 9am, when it starts. The staff were friendly and the situation with Covid has been handled well. I feel like staying in a big hostel like this can lose some of the friendliness that smaller Hostels have, such as free or cheap use of washing machines etc.

    In all my travelling the world this has to be the worst customer service I’ve ever encountered. After staying at the property over 3 weeks continuously, had a staff member barge into my room this morning and ask are you extending I said yes I’ve already booked online. He said come out to the counter and you need to let us know. Which is all fine, the attitude is not and when I get to the counter am asked to leave. Disgusting. The rooms/ shower also are cleaned periodically not everyday.
