    Great for young people. There is partying in the surrounding areas nearly all night long. Sleeping with the windows Closed and perhaps a white noise machine is highly recommended. The staff is Excellent! Very helpful and friendly. It's a hostel in a big city. Our dorm room was on the third floor—lots of stairs—but, good exercise. Don't rent a car! Ouch!! Parking is a nightmare and very expensive (not to mention the cost of insurance—twice the price of the vehicle! But, a must have!)

    Check out was at 10.30 but they came into the room around 9/9.30 and VERY loudly started making beds. It was quite frustrating. It is very near a very loud part of town at night also so I didn't get much sleep. It is however in an incredible location, essentially a very short walk away for all the top spots and main shopping areas. It was very clean and helpful friendly staff.

    Great hostel, highly recommend. Despite what people say, quite comfy beds and impeccably clean. Breakfast can get a little cramped and it’s loud at night (they offer earplugs). Location is perfect except there’s a bin station nearby that sometimes wafts in. The staff are generally nice, sometimes rude or apathetic, and not very knowledgeable about the area. My main annoyance was the amount of kids, infants and babies staying there. It’s overwhelming. But other than that, great place

    Great location. OK set up. Stayed in a 8 bed room. Slightly cramped and it was quite warm. Couldn’t sleep properly all three nights I was there. Also, one person in our room got sick and no one cleaned it up! Kinda gross.

    It was a pretty good hostel, all the staff seemed kind of cold except the Romanian and French guys. It’s really not a social atmosphere but they have a pub crawl you can go on which you meet people from other hostels. Other than that, everything was pretty average, except breakfast definitely needs to be done better.
