    Nice hostel, the only main two things to point out is it’s above a bar so it’s loud til late. That and nowhere to lock your possessions in the dorms. All in all a good place with large kitchen and good bathroom facilities. 👍

    Convenient location and good price. Bit noisy, especially considering I was there for a Monday and Tuesday night, not the weekend.

    Really helpful and friendly staff. Facilities are fine, but it is loud. (They did warn it would be loud, but I didn’t think it would be quite THIS loud. You can feel the vibrations from the music and the bowling alley; I barely slept all night. But other than that, really good place!

    I found the hostel nice but the music from the club downstairs was too loud. I would recommend to use some acoustic proof elements around the hostel so it would be possible to sleep the days the club is open. The conexion between the club and the hostel makes it impossible to not hear all the time the music in the club. Also, it doesn't appear in the main page that the club is downstairs whcih I find really important to know for the clients.

    I paid almost 40 pounds for a bed in an 8-bed dorm. I Simply could not sleep at night because of the loud music from the hostel bar, it was like I was in the bar with the people singing and dancing, the Walls almost shook. The girls bathroom were located far from my room and the showers and the toilets were located at a different place, not very Handy. The inclued breakfast could have been better, at least for 40 pounds. As a positive point, this hostel is located 10 minutes walk from the centre

    Room 106 very noisy, we could hear the night club under as well as the music vibration. Impossible to sleep. The room must have been used for something else before because of the wooden part used to close the from from an external area. Toilets and showers not located in the same from. We had to go upstairs to take a shower. A m’en came in the ladies shower room to use the washing machine.

    IF YOU WANT TO SLEEP, DO NOT GO TO THIS HOSTEL. They have a pub running until 3 am (at least) with the music extremely loud - and when we decided to go to the pub because we couldn't sleep they told us we had to pay. So, at the reception they gave us earplugs and we tried to sleep. After a while, the alarm went on, three times - because of the smoke from the pub. On top of it, after that night, breakfast was very poor and the staff in the morning very rude. I wouldn't recommend it at all.
