Nicole Green thinks…

"Really friendly, helpful staff. Nice vibe about the place-not noisy or rowdy but a friendly atmosphere to meet people. Great value pub crawl. Really good location for the city, old town & trains…"

Liked: It's a great hostel andwe felt very warmly welcome! They had a pubcrawl every night, which was great! But nobody will give you strange looks, if you are in the hostel for just relaxing and chilling...

Liked: The very friendly and helpful staff. The location was excellent.

Disliked: The street noise from outside was particularly bad on a Friday night and kept us awake much of the night. This is a pity because the hostel was very good in most other respects.

06 September 2012 Brock would recommend this property

Liked: Beds were comfy. Wifi worked. Lockers were huge. Lots of showers. Loved the dimmers on the lights.

Disliked: More to write here - but constructive feedback. Kitchen was a bit tiny but the biggest thing missing was a table you could sit and eat at or do some work. The only table was the coffee table in the middle of the couches. Bit annoying that they wont print any tickets for you unless you book your bus ticket through them. People can smoke out on the balcony - and naturally that smoke wafts in to the living room where everyone else is sitting.

The property's response is...

Liked: Really warm friendly hostel. Staff were lovely and helpful, the place was really clean and the beds were comfy. It has a great social kitchen/living area. A great place to meet other travellers.

Disliked: Wish they did breakfast!!! Not a big deal at all but there are only 2 toilets for the whole place and the lockers only accomodate small bags, not large backpacks.

Liked: Everything! It is a great place to meet other travellers. The staff is amazingly (really!) healpfull! Athmosphere is perfect. The rooms and commonspaces are well arranged. I think Cinnamon has something for everyone. There are pubcrawls, but it's not just a "partyhostel", it serves a good place for more "culture-oriented" as well. All the hostelowners should visit this hostel to see how it can be done!

Disliked: To be honest, nothing! Well, people do complain about the noice from the street, but that can be solved by using earplugs =)

Liked: It's a small hostel so it's really easy to socialise. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Location wise it's close to food, shopping and a short walk to the old town. Dorm rooms were spacious with wooden bunk beds and secure lockers.

Disliked: The lighting sensors in the shower could be a little annoying. Only a really minor issue.
