Liked: The WiFi was good and the bar and dining area were modern and a good place to catch up and make friends! Staff were helpful suggested things and tours to do and they were amazing, beds were comfy and our room was a good size however our friends room was half of he side with the same number of beds

Disliked: We were placed in a room with people who were staying for weeks not days so there things manopalised the room with clothes every where, it wasn't cleaned in the 4 nights we were there the bin was over flowing and a smell was making the room unpleasant also on Friday sat night didn't get any music due two noise from the live band at the bar, rock music to 2am isn't ideal for sleeping

Liked: It was a perfect location for what I wanted. The largeness of the property made me feel ok coming and going as I pleased. It was very clean and had everything I needed. Nice ambience.

Disliked: Only slight irritation was the bedrooms were too hot. Also it was pretty roudy outside the hostel when you were trying to sleep. Not bad enough to stop me staying again though.
