    The best thing about this hostel is its central position, only 100 metres from the Town Hall. Apart from that, there is plenty of space in the rooms, a large number of good clean bathrooms --showers separate from toilets-- and a relaxing communal/dining area on the 3rd floor with lounges and TV. The only objection anyone might reasonably make is that the kitchen, although adequately equipped, could be better organised and cleaner, especially the fridge. Wifi is excellent and free. Good value.

    Good placement in the city, nice enough staff, good locking doors system, however we were not provided with a lock which was part of the things we got in the deposit payment according to the website. then we couldn't properly secure our things and a charger was stolen from us when it was plugged into the wall. the location also looked nothing like the photos on the website, instead it was a little sketchy, in a back alley way.

    This hostel was disgusting when it came to cleanliness we checked in as people were leaving the room and not one person came in to clean the room. There was rubbish all over the floor and biscuits spread every where. The only time someone came in was to empt the bin.. the rooms were far to hot ask for the air con to be on and they wouldn’t no matter how much you ask. The only good thing about this hostel was the space in the room was big enough. Pillows felt like a baby’s changing mat
