    One of the best hostels I have stayed at. Top location! Easy to get to from the Airport, Railway station, the ferry etc...Staff is very friendly, the dorms are clean, and comfortable with each bed having its own power sockets, locker and curtains for some privacy. Bathrooms are very clean as well. Free breakfast. It’s a small hostel but with a great atmosphere and excellent facilities. Will definitely stay here again!

    One of the nicest, most stylish and cleanest hostels I’ve stayed in. And really quiet / private, too. Rooms and lockers are spacious and the common area has a wonderful living room feeling. What ruins it: a security guards will kick you out of the common area after 11pm (even if you’re just reading a book). Would have given 5/5 starts, but he security guard was a no-go-experience... Otherwise, this hostel is a definite recommendation!

    Amazing location. Neat space. Would prefer bathrooms in the rooms or a big bathroom instead of individual toilet rooms. Love the addition of curtains on the bunks however it would be nice to see a rule that if you're not there, to leave them open partially. I was never sure if someone was sleeping or in the room and didn't know if I could make noise or not. Loved the stay though!

    A nice clean and quiet hostel. There's a guard at 23 telling you to leave the common area. That kills the mood a little bit. Also means you have nowhere to talk, read etc. after that.

    A nice place but it was very quiet. There is a communal area but it was never utilised.
