Really enjoyed my time here, it’s in a great location and the staff were lovely. Only thing I could recommend is if there were bigger lockers, as only a day bag would likely fit in the lockers in our room.

Great hostel, super easy to meet people. Pod rooms are a game changer! Staff are fun too.

Pleasant stay. Really like the pods here rather than bunk beds, they’re cosy and have plenty of room. Mattress/pillows were probably some of the comfiest I’ve had in a hostel. Was fortunate to have a room with an en-suite between 8-10 of us, although room wasn’t full. Kitchen was well equipped, although thought cupboard storage space was lacking even though was definitely wasn’t full. Felt the security to the rooms/site was a bit lax although didn’t feel unsafe in anyway. Seemed like there was some entertainment going on the first night I was there although I wasn’t made aware of it when I checked in which was disappointing.
