Liked: Awesome location - so close to the main strip and an easy, walk from the tram stop. Really unique and fun layout in the hostel - medieval with a twist as the rooms have themes -harry potter etc. Theres a room for playing music, a quiet room and a massive lounge with games and couches where we saw a beer pong tournament. Theres a fully stocked self catered kitchen. We met some fun people who we ended up spending both our nights with and had a great time! We will definitely return!
