Liked: Ambiente e staff estremamente familiare, accogliente e disponibile. Presenza del wi-fi. Centro città raggiungibile con una passeggiata. Peccato per la pioggia che non ci ha permesso di usare il bellissimo giardino posteriore. Carino l'evento pancake organizzato in serata, peccato la poca partecipazione degli altri ospiti. colazione base ma per il prezzo che richiedono è accettabile.

Disliked: Presenza di solo 2 parcheggi fuori dall'ostello. Doccia rotta nella camera di sotto. Camere e servizi al piano primo molto meglio tenuti rispetto al piano terra.

Liked: It was an amazing and uncomplicated stay! Definitely recommendable especially for backpackers and students because you get more for your money than you could ever expect. The staff was always kind and it felt like being a part of a big family. They were always ready to help and equipment was perfect. Free wifi, breakfast for £ 1, 95 so no reason to moan about! Thanks for being the best hostel I've been to!

Liked: Overall, it's a decent hostel.

Disliked: Being lied to 3 times that there was heat when there wasn't. 5 degrees outside calls for heat inside. Basta con las mentiras! 2 people in a bed. Exactly why mixed dorms shouldn't exist.

Liked: As soon as I came in the door I was met with a fantastic, warm welcome by Carmin (the manager) then she whizzed around the house being friendly, helpful & explaining everything. Basically herself & every single member of the staff went out of their way to help you. The beds were fantastic, great facilities in general, breakfast was astounding value and then they have themed free (delicious) dishes every night. I've been to hostels all over Europe and this was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed at. Outstanding.-can't wait to return! All the other guests I met were lovely too.

Disliked: There was nothing to dislike-I'm hoping to stay in their brighton Kipps whenever I next get holidays.

Liked: The hostel had a lot of character with a lovely garden to relax instead of having to stay inside! Very spacious communal areas and everything was clean, beds were made to perfection and even had a toffee sweet on the pillow!

Disliked: One and only negative would be the creeky floor boards as I had to get up at 5am most days and had to walk like a ninja not to disturb anyone!

Liked: Everything! (expect for the tiny things below) Very nice staff!

Disliked: "interesting" locker design... In which you can still open it with the lock provided by the staff. But since people in the room doesn't notice and most of them are quite nice, it's actually ok for the night. The breakfast could be better. But valued for 2quid.
