    Fabulous

    Only feet from the main drag, the Shire has a great location with cheap parking close by. The beds were comfy and clean, though the washroom was a wash. The shower is a touch-button mechanism and doesn't have temperature control. If you like to have searing hot showers, then you may not mind, but I found it much too hot to stand in. The Shire bar is definitely a must. Great drinks and staff. The hostel is decent particularly for it's cost and location.

    Great location. Great price. Bar downstairs (next door) which has a great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend. A few hygiene issues but for the cheap price you can't complain.

    Good

    Attached to a themed bar with a fun atmosphere. Good location for the price, close to downtown area with plenty of restaurants and pubs nearby. Mattresses are old, tricky shower situation (scalding hot water). Overall decent stay for the price but don’t expect rooms above the bare minimum facilities. Bar music and patrons are heard pretty late into the night from hostel rooms.
