Liked: This hostel is in a fantastic location right in the centre, near lots of bars and cafes. It was really comfortable, and quiet at night so you get a good nights sleep.

Disliked: It's not very sociable, didn't meet anyone at the hostel. It's also not that clean in the bathroom - but ot doable.

Customer review

23 February 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: You get what you pay for, a bed.It just seems that 75% of the guests do not know how to use the sheets provided, which is in some cases quite disgusting. I hope they change the blankets/sheets from time to time...It's alright if you"re not expecting too much and just need a place to sleep. If you like to socialise go next door to Scubar not many opps in the hostel...
