Liked: Loved the location and price of the hostel. Beds were comfy enough and was given a blanket when asked.

Disliked: Noise from the music in the bar was SO loud. Bed linen was just a sheet. Got cold in the night and had to ask for a blanket. Bathrooms are a bit outdated and could do with a refurb.

Liked: Perfectly located in the city

Disliked: We were treated very badly when complaining for the reasoning of only having one plug socket in a four bedroom dorm. The receptionist on was more interested in talking to his friend then dealing with our simple request for an extension cable. We weren't even offered one for the next day when we went back. This should come with the price of the room.

Liked: Nothing other than the location

Disliked: Almost everything. The worst hostel I've ever stayed in. Booked an 8 bed mixed dorm which was expected except turned up to a door that said it was a 4 person dorm inside was 6 beds (3 bunks) then got told it was an 'unofficial' 8 bed where people didn't pay for beds they just slept on the floor. Room was filthy my bed sheets had been used and woke up early hours noise outside and inside the dorm and 2people on the floor. And it stank!

Liked: Love the fact that everyone helped each other. Staff were extremely helpful, and other guests too. Shared a room with 5 other people who were very friendly

Disliked: The only thing I can remember that I disliked was the smell of the room I was staying in. It seemed to smell of stale wee, but you couldn't smell anything after you'd stayed inside for a few minutes. The carpet needed to be changes, and maybe a coat of paint just to brighten the place up a little.
