Important Information

Please note: Although we have no curfew, the reception is only open till 11pm, and you are required to check-in by then. For group bookings of 9 or more people made within 30 days the remainder of the amount due will be charged to your credit card 4 weeks prior to arrival. If your booking is made within 4 weeks of arrival the full amount is payable immediately. Should numbers or room selection change, the per person deposit times the number of people who actually travelled will be deducted from the total accommodation charge levied by the hostel. If you are a group and booking through this site, please call us to make sure your whole group can be in the same room, because it's not guaranteed with your booking.

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay here. The Hostel is located next to the Bus station, so i's really easy to go on trips. The staff is amazing, they were so nice and always answered all the questions. My room was really clean and there where lockers to keep the important stuff safe.

Disliked: For 50 bed spaces there are only 4 showers and 4 toilets. It worked out quite fine, but sometimes you had to wait for a bit.

Liked: Good location

Disliked: Booked a 4 bed dorm for 4 people. Room was cramped and not big enough to fit 2 bunk beds in. The room smelt of damp and there was mold on the ceiling. The bedding did not smell clean and appeared to be dirty as there were black hairs on the bedding.

Liked: The staff were incredibly friendly. I had mixed up the dates of my booking but they were able to change it at no extra cost. They were really helpful with everything else. The beds were comfortable and the living area was really well equipped and comfortable.

Disliked: It would have been nice to have more plug sockets in the bedroom. There was just one extension lead at the other end of the room, meaning that I couldn't charge my phone overnight. There were also no lights around the beds. When I arrived, people were already asleep and it was difficult to do anything in the room without turning the main light on and waking them up.
