Important Information

INDIVIDUAL BOOKINGS: "Please note that we charge your credit card one day prior to arrival.

Liked: Lots of bedroom space, not too many beds pushed into one room (no bunk beds!). Showers and bathrooms were well decorated and clean. Kitchen/common area was nice with lots of seating and wifi. Hostel was very close to the main station and also the big cathedral square so very convenient for exploring.

Disliked: Kitchen only had one oven and one smaller sink so was fairly busy, not the best place to cook a full meal.

Liked: Our double room was very spacious and comfortable. The lounge and bar area was large, and the kitchen facilities were excellent. The location was very good for the city's main tourist attractions.

Disliked: Other guests were incredibly loud and inconsiderate of other guests - making loud, drunken noises until well after 4am. The hostel has no 'curfew' or 'lock out' but it could sure do with a time limit on noise! I would have got up and said something but was too tired to be bothered to after several nights of having no sleep! Also not in a great area for nightlife.

Liked: Brilliant location right next to the main train station and Cathedral. Greeted by friendly staff and allowed to leave my luggage in storage when I arrived early before I could check in. The kitchen was well equipped to allow you to make your own food with wifi available in the communal lounge/kitchen/reception area. My room was spacious, clean and comfortable with plenty of plug sockets and places to put my stuff. There were lockers just outside of the room under CCTV to make sure my personal belongings were safe.

Disliked: Abigail left no negative feedback.
