    The owner of the hostel was lovely. The rooms were clean and spacious. Everything was really clean and smelt fine. The kitchen and lounge were my favourite area, it was so comfortable and cozy in there, perfect for drinking a cup of tea. Good job Penny Pinchers

    Both my sister and I were very sick when we arrived here and the owner went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible whilst we were recovering, which was greatly appreciated. Rooms are spacious and clean, with toilets and showers in the room. Common area had arcade games and board games.

    Full kitchen which is very useful and great showers. It's a quick 15minute walk to the other side of the river and old town and a bit longer to the Cathederal and central station. I thought it was a great location. Comes with a full length locker and key on check in. Also ledge next to bed and 2 power points. Cannot complain! Great stay
