Liked: Excellent set up, shared kitchen and bathroom which were never busy and always clean. Very friendly and helpful staff. Reasonable price for being in a major city. It even had a laundrette which was a bonus.

Disliked: The people were not all that friendly and the social area although it was nice never seemed to have any one in it. The location is about a half an hour walk if you're quick. It is quite far from the harbour front, but for the price you can't really complain.

Liked: Kirchen was clean and every thing works fine. bathrooms are a bit old, but OK.

Disliked: obviously, due to the missing window in our room the air wasn't that fresh and it was a little bit hot at night.

Liked: Good security. A wardrobe.

Disliked: All of the things described above. Plus town was really loud! Also I could hear a fan or something all night.


The property's response is

Hi Jess, thanks for the review. Sorry you found the town loud but it's just because we are so central. We also offer rooms with no windows which make it much quieter! Many thanks, BK Hostel.
