21 November 2006 would recommend this property

Liked: Brand New Hostel, only opened since Sept 2006. Extremely clean. We stayed in the twin rooms which had good facilities - private shower. Location is very good. 10 mins walk from Prince's street. They have a bar which is open till 9pm and you can order tea sambos etc. No real atmosphere though if you want to meet other backpackers. Would recommend this hostel.
