Arrived here on the Friday for a stag with about 16 mates. Stayed until Sunday. We booked 2 dorms, one ensuite. Dorms were...

Not much to say really . Noisy, damp,smelly unclean room. Asked to be moved. The second one wasn't much better and the bed linen had a cigarette odour! Won't be returning! It's location is ideal but that's it I'm afraid.

Came ova for a poker tournament & expected the place would be a dive. Only to be pleasantly surprised by the helpful polite staff, the cleanliness of my room & amount of shower cubicles available. Due to my AA getting cracked I made an early exit back to the hostel, logged into their W-Fi & watched Netflix for a few...

It was not great. It was good that it is near the city center I don't expect much from an hostel. It was not terrible because it was not dirty. The beds where hard but not so old. The toilet was not working, you needed to open the toilet and press an button in site to flush. I don't know...

We had a private room - the 'Dolphin' room, which is fitting as my last name is Dolphin - which had a double...

The staff were wonderful. I cannot say a negative thing about them. The rooms were clean, beds comfy and blankets warm. The room was a bit colder at night we just never opened the window to prevent it from getting cold. Wifi didn't work on my phone at all but my friend could get it in the common areas. Breakfast...

When we went into our room, it smelled very strange inside. At night, it was too hot, the walls are like paper, you hear everything!! The beds are too small and the blankets seemed like already used before. The facilities were very dirty... I can't recommend it to anyone but my worse enemy.
