    Facility was great. Under my top sheet the mattress wasn’t very clean. The showers were to be expected for a hostel! Overall it was a great place for our group of 6, we were able to book a full dorm to ourselves.

    Beds are comfy and dorms are good, there’s a cool bar and lounge area and the staff are really helpful. The kitchen is basic and quite small so big groups make it difficult to use. Overall really good and great location

    Location is great, near public transport. And it’s only a 20-minutes walk from the Hbf. Check in and check out is easy like a breeze. It was a pleasant stay.

    Staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. As far as the lounge goes, it could use a little upgrading. We sat at the bar quite a lot because it was nicer. The beds and bathrooms were clean. We stayed in a 6 person mixed dorm, and anytime someone shut the door everyone on the floor could hear it.

    Pretty barebones but got the job done :). Good thing it was cheap and facilities were pretty good. Shared one shower between 8 people, and got mysterious bites on leg. Overall a quite good experience. Thank you!

    The rooms themselves, were nice, modern and new. But as stated in previous reviews; there is no social atmosphere, there are always groups of people hanging around the entrance which is uncomfortable, and the kitchen was a disgrace. No one cleans up after themselves and the hostel seems to turn a blind eye. The fridge and kitchen smell and it is evident that the fridge has never been cleaned out before by the hostel. Would recommend if they don’t want a kitchen and for people in groups.

    All staff but one british guy were very rude to us, security was poor anyone could walk in ask for the key and go to the luggage room, or kitchen. Kitchen was tiny, someone left the hob on which is a massive fire hazard. Me and my friend both 18 year old girls were put in a mixed room with 2 40 year old men, and we didn't feel comfortable and when asked to change we got told we would have to pay more. Value for money is poor very expensive and facilities are rubbish, very noisy, no air con.
