    Rooms a little outdated but it was good for somewhere to put your head down after a busy day. Didn’t spend much time inside the hostel, food was good and location was great

    The beds were quite clean with fresh bedsheets however the floors in the room didn't look like they had been vacuumed. The showers and toilets were not too bad, a little bit messy at times and definitely not new. The kitchen area is on the rooftop and is not closed off from the elements, so it felt quite unsanitary since any wildlife could go in there. There was also basically no cutlery or utensils available. Aside from that everything was as can be expected for the price.

    Very cheap and good value hostel, though the room was absolutely coated in dust and the hostel as a whole was incredibly dirty. Would stay there again though for the low cost.

    In a nice location, however the floors were very dirty in the rooms and there was a lot of dust plus mould on walls. The kitchen is also very small and not the cleanest. The pub downstairs does really nice food and a good lunchtime offer.

    Rough as guts place - door was hanging off it hinges, bathrooms are real gross. But we were there for mardi gras so if you just need a place to crash it's fine.

    This place was a dump. The beds squeaked every time you move. The ladders to the top bunk were broken. There was one locker for four people in my room. The showers had no where to put your stuff to keep dry or secure from anyone who might be inclined to grab it. There was no working light in the toilets and only one toilet per gender per floor for ten rooms and I don't know how many beds (there were 4 beds in my room). The restaurant did have very good food though.
