Liked: Location close to bars and restaurants and centre. Good workable kitchen. Plenty of areas to relax. Hot showers. Staff helpful and friendly.

Disliked: At the time we went there were a lot of school parties and families with noisy children. At night the children made a lot of noise running around corridors and unmanaged by parents, which meant disrupted night sleep for both nights we stayed there..disappointing. Toilets could be cleaner. First hostel that I have been to that seemed to have as many children and adults, but who appeared noisier!!

Liked: The location was good and staff was nice.

Disliked: Poorly organized kitchen. No bowls, one cooker didn't work. Rooms small with narrow space between bunks. Downstairs showers/bathrooms were modern but upstairs ones were pretty rough-should do a reno of them.

With my spouse / partner

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year, Romantic getaway

Age Range:
31-40

Liked: All staff was really nice and helpful, cool cinema room, good sized lockers out of the room, well equipped kitchen, common room, dining room, plenty of bathrooms and showers. Stayed in a dorm, in one private room, left but kept my stuff in a locker with no problems, came back and got another private room, all done smoothly. Around the property are many facilities and very close to the bus station. Another remark is that everything was very clean.

Disliked: The dorm room I stayed had one bunk bed too much, space enough just to pass between them. Ensuite bathroom with no lock on the door, no lid on the toilet and all showers in the property are those you pump a button to come out water and have to keep doing it, no control over temperature which was frequently quite cold. The first private room I got was under the level of same priced ones in other places, but the second one was pretty good and spacious, so better check which one you prefer before.

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff, the premises are old and simple, but kept clean, breakfast is decent for the price.

Disliked: The room was dark and small. It would be great help if there were individual lamps at the beds or other forms of light except the main overhead light that wakes everybody up.
