"They actually have two properties. We stayed in the quieter building next door as our booking on Hostelbookers came through wrong. We booked a 6 bex mixed dorm but they only had a female dorm. The staff were lovely…"

05 August 2009

Liked: The hostel is very clean and the staff was very enthusiastic. That is the best part of the facility. Unfortunately, the enthusiasitic and really nice staff seemed completely overwhelmed and not up to the task of running the hostel. They ran out of bread for breakfast, our laundry took over 24 hours, we didn´t get it all back without searching, there was no hot water (it wasn´t turned on) and more. I would look for somewhere else before booking this place again.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

05 August 2009

Liked: Very poor hostel design, no privacy, unreliable hot water, wireless did not work, single computer available was incredibly slow: took about an hour to write a three paragraph email because word processing was so slow. All bathrooms in downstairs, shared room area had large glass windows with no curtains. Staff tried their best but were understaffed and not very knowledgable.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: This place was not professional, did not accept credit cards as it stated, and did not have a reservation when we arrived. They also said all the museums were closed, including the only one with an artifact from easter island. We found out that this was not the case. This hostel is a poor examply of an HI hostel.

22 April 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel wasnt bad but it did seem slightly overpriced for the cleanliness of the place. The staff were friendly and the TV room and the wi fi was good. The internet on their computer on the other hand was really slow. It seemed like a good place to meet people and the upstairs outdoor space was great.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Conor Molan

04 January 2009 Conor would recommend this property

Liked: This is a brand new hostel (still slightly under construction) - the rooms are basic but spacious and spotless and the bathrooms are newly fitted with plenty of hot water. Although the hostel is slightly unorganised at present, the staff are extremely friendly and couldnt be more helpful. In my opinion this will be a very good hostel once fully up and running in a few months.

Disliked: Conor left no negative feedback.
