    Friendly staff and great atmosphere. Perfect location right in the middle of town. Free tea and coffee. Only downside is the beds! Top bunks have no rail and ladders are only attached at the top, which makes for a very precarious night's sleep.

    Very friendly hostel with an extremely welcoming atmosphere. Well-located and easy to find. Beds were very comfortable and good locker space too. Toilet cubicles were very small so maybe difficult to use if you’re very tall! I was also pleasantly surprised by the friendly hostel cats, but if you are allergic you may want to stay elsewhere!

    Great location, good vibes, very clean, safe, and chill. At least the upstairs rooms are. Some people I met who were staying in the downstairs rooms had their things stolen as the door doesn’t lock completely.

    Really enjoyed my stay at Zen, met loads of great like-minded solo travellers. Some of the lockers are broken and the doors to dorms don't lock, which was slightly annoying, but as there was a main gate at the front there was no issue with security overnight, but during the day anyone could walk in. Well-equipped kitchen and lots of nice areas to hang out. Could do with a couple more shower/toilet stalls but never had to wait too long. Friendly and helpful staff, great location.

    Stayed here for Untold. Nice wee hostel, although compared to another place around the corner, still a few things that could improve. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My bedroom didn't have curtains, and the beds aren't the comfiest (plus squeaky shaky bunk beds), so post festival sleeping was hard. Kitchen area was cosy though.

    The hostel was nice and central. Although I didn’t have any issue I thought the access to the hostel and rooms wasn’t very secure. I had a good stay overall and do recommend just keep your valuables in a locker when you are not around!

    Shower in large dorm didn't work, toilet door didn't close fully or lock, guests were staying well past checkout time and inviting whoever they wanted into the dorm room. Also, guests were unpleasant and unfriendly, but that is not the owner's repsonsability.
