as hostels go this is pretty good, well organised, good kitchen, clean (ish) bathrooms, and nice lounge. Well managed with good support day or night, rooms are small but totally adequate and its great value for money. Nice and quiet

This hostel is lovely. The room was clean, with enough power points for each guest. The kitchen was very well equipped and kept clean. The bathrooms were clean and modern. Wifi was amazing, fast enough to use Skype and upload photos/download music and films. It was quiet at night so you can get a good nights sleep. Most people staying...

Hostel 109 is the perfect place to get some decent sleep on some proper quality mattresses! The dorms and common areas are all spotless and seemed to be cleaned daily. The atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, however there's always friendly travelers keen for a chat in the lounge area. Bathrooms are spacious and clean, and there are all the facilities...

My first impression of the place was that it was split up. 109 is apparently for the non dorm cliental (might be wrong)...

A quiet clean hostel with good facilities. Not overly crowded allowing you to have your own space to watch tv or cook in the kitchen spaces. Clean bathrooms and bedrooms. Nice location near the parks of the east terrace. Helpful staff although not based in the building
