Liked: Good location, really short walk to the main square, but out enough to get a good nights sleep away from the action! Staff were really helpful, ensuite in dorm rooms was good. there were lockers and its secure!

Disliked: There were only two power points in the room to share between 16 girls, and none near beds so you had to leave your belongings out? But could charge at reception too. Guest wifi doesn't work, but they let me use their admin wifi which was awesome!

Liked: It was a good location.

Disliked: It was dirty, both in the small lounge and dorms. we were in beds right next to the loo and shower and the light was not turned off. i slept for half an hour because someone was being sick all night, the loo for 16 people should not be positioned right next to where someone has to sleep.

Liked: It was in a good location. Offered breakfast, but really just an egg and two slices of bread, not sure if you can call that breakfast.

Disliked: The room was not that clean. My bead was missing a pillow, and lockers didnt match beds. So you had to go to different parts of 16 bed room to get to your locker, that meant other people were always rummaging in lockers next to your bed.

Liked: The location, the relaxed atmosphere, the free lockers and the bar/reception area (when it's open). Most of the staff are quite friendly and helpful.

Disliked: -The showers are absolutely disgusting- stink of piss and mould and the drains in the shower and sinks are forever blocked. -There is not even a fan provided so the rooms are like saunas all through summer. -There is no common room to be in once the bar/reception shuts at 3am, nor is there a kitchen. Plus the hostel expects you to buy beer from them, they won't let you have your own- as though they are a bar- which they aren't, otherwise people who aren't guests would be allowed in there. Whatever you do make sure you don't get a room on the ground-floor, unless you are stoned and drunk you will not sleep a wink.
