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…"

18 July 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Atmosphere was really nice, and cozy. The staff was helpful in pointing out some interesting sites, and restaurants on a map for us. The rooms were also kept very clean, and the hostel was generally peaceful and relatively quiet.

Disliked: This wasn't a huge issue for me, but the hostel is located directly above a McDonalds, and our window looked out onto where the employees took their breaks which was at times a little bit loud.

Liked: Spacious property, everything well functioning, good dorms and bedding

Disliked: The lounge is very loud in the evening, very loud. Till midnight (flexible). Since it is the central space with everything around it can´t be avoided. I´m not the only quiet guest so things are out of balance. They also serve too much beer or whatever, a hostel is not a pub. And the whole day a loud radio has to be on, life doesn´t seem to be possible without liquor and noise ... how sad.

The property's response is...

Liked: The staff was amazing: really helpful and fun! It is a great place to meet other people, but because everyone is spending time at the corridor / living room until late at night, it might be a bit noisy in the evenings. They have a set quiet time though, so it was fine.

Disliked: The other toilet broke during our stay, but they got it fixed very fast.

Liked: Female dorm. Proximity to station. Helpful staff.

Disliked: Not really a complaint but the 'boho' style decor and the number of teenagers lying around on beanbags trying desperately to look cool made me (a woman of a certain age) feel I didn't belong. The clutter, trailing leads, cracked laminate flooring, knickers under the bed and untidiness gave me the impression of a lack of cleanliness but probably made the aforementioned kids feel at home.
