    I stayed two nights at female dormitory rooms. The rooms were really nice as a person who stayed at various hostels before, I can clearly say this was the best one in terms of cleanliness and facilities. Beds were very comfortable and they have considerably large bathrooms. I personally am okay with staying other people in the same room so I would gladly stay at the female dorms again.

    The hostel was lovely, very modern and clean and looked beautiful inside. The rooms were perfect and very affordable. The location was great as it was tucked away so it wasn’t noisy but still easy to get to everywhere.

    I must say, it's a strange business model. I've been to a lot of hsotels, and I've never been asked to pay seperately for the use of bed covers. Especially straight after paying for the room. I had to make an additional transaction. I'd rather the nightly price be an additional £1 and the bedding included, instead of the inconveniance of having to do multiple transactions at check-in. Maybe it's different in peak season, but it's a very big building, which gave it a very emoty feeling.

    The location is fine and the facilities are new, however they have a big problem, there was not always water (apparently a pressure problem). They also charged us an additional tax that did not appear in the hostelword reservation (when I booked it was stipulated that all taxes were included).

    A & O hostel has a dead atmosphere for a hostel. It is pretty much a hotel with dorm rooms. The hotel is too hot and hard to sleep. A family would enjoy this if they book out a room for themselves. Also, they made me pay €3 for linen on top of the regular price. How ridiculous is that. The beds are noisy. Honestly only go there if you don't want to socialize with anyone or if you're part of a family.

    We arrived to the hostel and the staff told us that they didn't have a room for us because it was a "overbooked". We waited for 2 hours in the lobby because they were looking for another hostel... At the end we also needed to pay the taxi to the other hotel and they did not refound us the money that we paid them for the reservation, so we paid so much extra money for their mistake. AWFUL.
