Liked: The kitchen is small, dirty and lacks bowls and platesThe common area is too small for the amount of people staying there as you found it hard to get a seat. The tv room is only open on certain days it seemed to be only when they had movie night.The bedrooms lack power pointsOverall it was not bad as far as hostels go but it is just too small for the amount of people staying there. The free all you can eat breakfast is also first come first served so you may go without. The kitchen was defiantly the worst part. Dirty and crap just piled up everywhere as there was never any tea towels to wipe up

Liked: Enjoyed the warm and friendly staff went on two of the events that were avialable and were encoraged to mingle with other travellers and share experiances. Rooms were cosy and comfortable and the staff were aminable.

Disliked: Only one bad point the first night we were there they had a fire alarm at 4AM which was proptly sorted out.

Liked: Excellent hostel, reasonably priced, clean and has a friendly & funky atmosphere. The toilet & shower room is private/for one person per time which is nice and apparently the breakfast (which I was too hungover to make it to!) is good too :) Rooms are nice and quiet but if you wanna stay up drinking there'll be plenty of company ;) Had great fun with the gorgeous, fabulous Rhona - hope I've spelt that right - and just having her working there (also met a lovely blonde haired Canadian girl whose name I didn't catch) makes this hostel worth the price of entry alone!!! Highly recommended A+++

Disliked: Nothing whatsoever
