    I stayed here with my friend over the weekend, we had a private en-suite bathroom. The hostel is perfectly located, only a short 5 minute walk to the central station and town centre!

    Overall good stay! The rooms were nice (no bunk beds) and it had an amazing location. The staff were very friendly and helpful too. the rooms and bathrooms were clean but the pillows on the bed are in dire need of replacing, they were really flat and lumpy.

    Great location right next to the train station, inexpensive, comfortable if sparse, and very friendly staff. Perfect if you just need a place to shower and crash before / after a long day of sight-seeing.

    The hostel was friendly and welcoming. Quite busy with multiple groups and good bar. This was good for us but might not be for you if you want a quiet hostel. That said I don’t think it was noisy and the location was excellent and buffet breakfast available.

    It was the cheapest we found in/around the old town area, but it was still pricey. Looks and feels like a normal hotel, bar area was nice but overall, it didn’t have the hostel feel. Fantastic location, nice staff, and clean room.
