Luke O'Neill

22 March 2010 Luke would recommend this property

Liked: the bathrooms and rooms were not very clean, and the dorm we stayed in was no bigger than a double bedroom with three sets of bunk beds crammed in! internet was expensive, and you had to pay daily for a locker.... saying that the free breakfast was good, they did arrange stuff to do in the nights but seemed a bit expensive for backpackers. The staff are really really nice tho :)

Rebecca Hulme

19 March 2010 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: This was your average hostel. Pretty big, a little bit funky, pretty good kitchen common room etc. I think that the organised events every night would be a great way to meet people.For me, the stand out were the staff. They were all extremely helpful and lovely - and my room was upgraded from the 28 bed dorm to a 4 bed dorm. How about that?!

Customer review

06 March 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We had booked a night in the "church" room with 28 beds but got upgraded to a 6 bed dorm for the same price because of a leak which was nice. Not a bad hostel but very commercial. Its part of a large chain and it really shows-stuff a lot of hostels give away for free incurs a charge here-towels,wifi,internet,lockers, there are ads everywhere and their tours were heavily promoted (an intercom comes on in your room a couple of times to tell you when the pub crawl is leaving). The room itself was fine but our air con unit was dripping loudly for ages until someone else in the room fixed it. Also there was a bit of a funky smell in there. Nice staff. Okay to stay a night but wouldnt like a longer stay-probably more suitable for younger backpackers.
