Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Everything. The pictures are completely different to the broken down hostel it was. We had booked to stayed for 5 nights but after walking in we cancelled the rest of it. Felt extremely unsafe, there are no lockers in the room. The receptionist looked high

Liked: Check in staff was friendly. Shower works well. Central location.

Disliked: Not a place to sleep. Until 4am I felt the bass and heard the music as loud as being in a club. From 7am full daylight in the room. Absolute horrible stay, would definitely recommend NOT staying here, ever.

Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year

Liked: Great location - so close to all the bar and pubs on Long Street, and only a short cab ride to all the major attractions. Staff were super friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The rooms are really noisy - guess that's what comes from being located on the party street. Would have been good to have a fan in the room so we could close the window and keep out some of the noise.
