    Stayed three nights in a 12 person room and was very pleased. Location is perfect for sighseeing aroud the old town and is a stones throw from public transport. Staff was lovely and helpfull, atmosphear was relaxed and had no isses with any other guests. Clenliness of the bathroom space wasnt perfect as there was a faulty toilet and the sinks drained slowly sometimes; however with the amount of people using the space everyday it was in decent condition and overall clean.

    Rooms are nice and clean, they have everything that is needed. In the other hand the bathrooms, they can get super dirty through the day. I’ve worked in hostels in the past and the bathrooms were cleaned twice a day at least I think they should clean them more often too

    Let me start with the good parts of the hostel. The location is the best I have every see. The hostel is minutes away from the royal miles and across the street from the train station. The staff are so nice and welcoming very personable. You get what you pay for I payed 10 pounds for one night. My friends and my beds were either dirty or just unmade entirely. The shirts were made but you could easily tell they were unmade. The sides around the bed had dried contacts and other things.

    Las 2 noches que estuve en el hostal, tuve problemas, encontré en mi cama a 2 personas distintas, la primera vez porque alguien se coló en el cuarto y la segunda porque al cambiarme de habitación el recepcionista de turno no lo actualizó en el sistema, por esto y por la contestación del primer recepcionista que "solucionó" el problema con la cama, mi estadía no fue muy satisfactoria

    There was a technical error on the Hostelworld app and I ended up paying £297.15 for a hostel I never stayed in. I booked for 3 nights but 5 nights have been charged for the wrong dates. I was charged in Euros - neither mine nor the hostels local currency-assuming tech error again. I'm upset with Hostelworlds' service and how the situation has been handled. The customer service team didn't try to understand or empathize the situation at all. Resulting in my being out of pocket+cant go to festi.
