"The beds were nice and clean and the bathrooms had key card access. Everything required keys and there were luggage lockers right in the room! I especially liked they had charging ports inside the lockers."

Customer review

26 December 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff were overly helpful and the rooms/facilities were pretty good. Did not have a particularly great atmosphere and they didn't offer a lot of the bonding activities (eg film nights etc) other hostels do so it was hard to mix in such a large hostel

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Naomi Smith

02 December 2009

Liked: We had a private double room which was way overpriced considering there was just a bed and a locker. The locker was the best thing about the whole place. The kitchen was not nearly big enough when the hostel was full which it was - we could barely get near the cooking facilities. It was quite a noisy hostel, lots of banging doors etc. The internet was not good so if you haven't got a laptop, you had to go out to an internet cafe. There were not enough toilets and showers considering the number of people staying there. It's OK for one night but I would not like to stay there long term

Customer review

19 October 2009

Liked: Not much good to say about my night there. The hall and bedroom constantly smelled of cigarettes, to the point that I believe this may be a hostel that allows people to smoke in the common rooms...? The bathroom door on my level squeaked really loudly whenever someone went in or out - luckily my room was on the opposite side of the floor but I could still hear it loudly. I would hate to think what the poor people in the rooms around it had to put up with. Staff member that checked me in was completely unhelpful. No advice or info given; she didn't even tell me how to get to my room.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

04 March 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Staff were all amazingly friendly and helpful! Great location right next to central station with secure in-room lockers. Great idea having charging outlets inside the lockers and giving each bed it's own light! Not a party hostel, so it's fairly quiet, but it's also not a great place to meet lots of people. All aorund very good value for money!
