Liked: This is at a very central location. OK sociable environment. Most people get to know each other through Stray or Kiwi experience.

Disliked: Wifi needs to be paid. (Note premium internet access was actually very good when I used it). There is a club/bar downstairs - which can get quite loud on the weekend (and the vibration produced from their bass is quite annoy).

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: the en-suite we had for the 6 bed dorm which was large with plenty of space especially considering other hostel dorms we had been in

Disliked: the kitchen seating area is very small and the kitchen doesn't stay open late.The lack of other showers and toilettes, even though our room had an en-suite it still meant waiting for 5 other people.Check-in was incorrect on the hostel bookers website
