This is the second No. 8 Hostel I've been to and both have been great experiences.

Rooms are very dirty,bug traps in the rooms, bath's are nasty and not clean. Fridays they do partys with loud music even after midnight. For a review you get free beer. Kitchen has nearly no facility.

gd location where closes to undergroundThe bathrooms had unfavorable smells, sink was broken, poor lighting. The private double had super tiny window right next to the outdoor patio making it easy for obnoxious people to disrupt your sleep. It provided a place to sleep.

Very unique hostel above a bar. Cool place to hang out and good drink deals for hostel guests. Workers were friendly and helpful and made sure your stay was comfortable. Also has some outdoor patios and a fully equipped kitchen. Would definitely recommend

Amazing hostels. You don't need to go out to have a blast. Downstairs in the pub, you get even a discount for your drinks. Clean bathrooms and kitchen. Nice and friendly staff. Will stay again in the future.
