    Superb

    03 Oct 2018
    Staff were very friendly and welcoming, and hostel had a great sociable atmosphere with events (pub crawl, karaoke, pub quiz etc) held at the bar every night. Rooms were clean and spacious with large lockers, a safe box, a socket and a light for each person. Music was quite loud if you were on the lower floors and wanted an early night. Other than that the only issue is that we left something behind and haven’t been able to get hold of them.

    Location was perfect (right in the middle of the street buzz) and atmosphere inside the hostel was great. Smoothies were good + free breakfast! Only had a couple of problems with the staff confusing our reservations. But overall would DEFINITELY recommend!

    Fabulous

    Great hostel overall. Definitely a party hostel though. Be prepared for loud nights and drunk roommates! That being said, they close down the bar around 11:30/midnight so it's pretty quiet then, though it's still a busy street. Beds are comfy, nice storage lockers for all your stuff. They offer lots of travel excursions and tours in town, definitely take advantage! The backstreet motorbike tour was my absolute favorite thing.

    Very Good

    You'll love it if you've just turned 21 and being *** up. As a solo male traveller I can't make friends over pounding dance music and the staff screaming down the microphone actually gave me a headache. Really disappointing. A tip please offer a chance for people to mingle and say hello to each other. So many staff members who didn't help or introduce me to people and just wanted to push me to buy tours. Best located hostel. Excellent facilities. Shame its an American frat party for kids.
