    First time in a hostel, was made to feel very welcome by the staff. It’s not a clubby hostel so it’s nice and quite. At weekends the club outside/to the left of the hostel can be quite noisy but that’s fixed with the free ear plugs! They even let you keep you bag there till 10pm of the day you check out, for free! Will go back again. Thanks!

    Great hostel. Stayed in 10 bed mixed dorm. Was a very spacious room. It was a very clean hostel. They put out cereal in the morning which was great as didn’t have to go and get breakfast! Met some amazing people in this hostel with its friendly atmosphere. About 5 min walk to the train station and 5 min away from the main square. Would recommend this place to anyone!

    Excellent location, clean facilities, comfortable rooms. Loved having the additional female bathroom as it offered an extra element of privacy. The hostel provided guests with free ear plugs which blocked out all the noise from the nightclub below + the street, so I slept like a baby every night!!

    It's a nice hostel. The rooms are very small though and there is almost no common space to hang out/sit etc. The toilets and showers are the other side of the hallway than the rooms so if you need to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night it's an ordeal
