Perfect location in the city centre, everything at walking distance. From experience I expected little comfort from the matrasses, but we had no complaints at all! The staff is very friendly and helpful, they printed our boarding passes for us when we had to leave for the airport. We'll be back!

The prices are low, the facilities adequate, the hostel is very clean and well organised. There is a friendly atmosphere and it's well placed in the centre of the city. An ideal base...

We came as a couple on a wekend when there were a lot of people up for a night out, so the atmosphere so the atmosphere around the shotel was quite laddish. Pretty basic but no faults to be found really other than wifi being only available in the lounge area

Staff were every friendly. The hostel seemed quiet on arrival, maybe because it was a Wednesday in the beginning of June. The room and WC were tidy. However, I woke up several times in the middle of the night with people running in the corredor and also screaming. This was distressing as I could not have a good night of...

We booked 3 x 4 man rooms. The hostel is extremely clean particularly including the linen and bathrooms. Staff are friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, 5 mins from train station, range of bars/restaurants on the same street. Coffee and Toasts was included and there is a cafe next door if you needed more. Overall highly recommended.

Stayed here with 8 other girls for a Hen Weekend so we had a dorm to ourselves. Bunk beds were comfy, although they need updating as a lot of the top bunk metal racks were snapped. Room was immaculate and so were the showers/toilets. Great central location and great prices. Would definitely stay again!
