Great hostel stay. Swimming pool was a great size to share with others. Supermarket’s very close and right next to lots of pubs & bars. Lovely stay.

Stayed 4 nights in a private room. Staff are very unfriendly, no one tells you how the hostel works, it really felt like we are bothering them to check in or when we have a question. No one tells you that you need to pick up set of cutlery at the reception, same for WiFi. Room decent. Music is way too loud on the week end. Bathroom are a disgrace, everything is broken, some of the showers don’t have a handle to regulate the temperature. Doors are broken so you can’t lock it.
