The staff were super friendly and helpful and the location was in walking distance of all must do's in the city.
The beds were super uncomfy, toilets not clean and common area cramped and outdated. We felt a little uncomfortable and actually thought of leaving after paying. Everything needs upgrading.
It was cheap and well located
Other than the fact it was cheap (we booked a private double room) and was centrally located the actual place itself was a dump. The first room we were given hadn’t been cleaned so it still had a ton of rubbish from the previous occupant and it didn’t have a mattress (????). Went down to reception and got moved to another room despite them saying they were fully booked? It was better than the last room but very dated, stained walls and roof plus mould in the corners. It’s a place to rest your head but don’t expect anything decent from the property.
Our room was dirty, rubbish, old clothes, empty bottles, no sheets. Was giving another room and then someone came into our room and woke us up at 2:30am was the staff trying to give the room to someone else we later found out. Would not recommend
Literally the only thing that wasn't horrible about this place was the location.
The hostel was absolutely disgusting. We turned up in our room and the entire ceiling had stains of water leaking through the ceiling. We didn't think much of it, but when we had a closer look, the ceiling had dripped onto the top bunk bed and stained it with a disgusting yellow/brown stain. When we told the reception, they pretended that was the first time they heard about it, even though it was obvious that they had tried to hide the ceiling stains under some sheets of gib or something previously, but it kept leaking through. They did move us to another room which was "better". Kitchen and toilets were pretty disgusting too (showers not tooooooo bad).
Clean, close to the city and great value for money.
A bit old, could do with fresh paint.
