    I’ll get the bad things out of the way first. Only one power point in a room for 4 people, I could feel the springs through my mattress, the blankets on the bed were incredibly thin, and the place is in need of some renovations. However, toilets and showers were always clean and the kitchen was fairly large, and the lounge area was comfortable. Overall, this place was fine for a night or two but wouldn’t want to stay any longer.

    Cool little hostel. Close to the supermarket and bus stop. Kitchen does get messy very quickly and can be a bit cramped if a few people are trying to cook. Seems to be a lot of people staying and working there long term so not the most social place.

    The staff were noisy at night despite there being signs telling guests to be quiet after 10pm. They were sat being loud,right outside our door. We did not feel comfortable to say anything. The staff were not very welcoming and we arrived at 12 noon where we were told reception was closed . Very clique-y atmosphere with little interaction with new guests.
