    The staff are Lovely, genuinely!! I booked a 6 person mixed room and realised I was the only female there. I didn't feel comfortable staying so the man at reception went above and beyond to find me another 6 bed with more women. The only downside to the hostel is because it's so cheap and so close to central station; the people who stay there Can be a bit dodgy; which is not a critic on the hostel itself, but more a heads up to women traveling alone; maybe stay in a female room.

    Overall a good hostel with amazing bathrooms and single beds. However very close to the train station so can be noisy at night time, there is no kitchen facilities or common room only the bar area.

    The staff, the location and the facilities are great, imho. For some reason though, the hostel seems to attract a certain type of people. Can't recommend it, unfortunately.

    Do not stay here - I cannot express enough that your money is better spent else where. The place is full of bed bugs and the facilities are filthy. Upon approaching the team 2 times to address my concerns, I was told it is my problem and I had to sort it. I got covered in bites and was only offered a different room. I approached them for a refund and was told I had bought the bugs with me (even though I had no issues until the first night at this hostel). Poor atmosphere, dirty, don't stay!!!!
