My group of 5 friends stayed here for 1 night in November as our plane landed too late for us to catch a connecting bus back home. We didn't expect much but still found ourselves disappointed. Firstly the location is awful. Very close to the center of town but hidden away down some dodgy, deserted back alleys and underneath a...

Staff were extremely friendly. Sam checked us in and explained everything, the rest of the staff were also lovely and down to earth. This was my first time staying in a hostel, and despite only staying for one night, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is a bit shady, especially walking back in the dark, but other than that it's...

I`m staying at here on the mid of November, when you are in the bullring then only 10mins walk way to the place. Basically the staff there was very friendly & helpful to me. the only things i was disappointed was the place of staying. i was staying in a room of 6, yet i feel that is a nightmare...

We spend our first night in a private two bed room and it was freezing cold, the wind was actually blowing through the window. The toilets were broken, no hot water was available and there was a big hole in one of the toilets' window. Next night we spent in a 6 person dorm: it was warmer but the beds...

The Hostel was ok for spending a couple of nights but not very good for much else. Showers broken, quiet time at 11 but there was a lot shouting on a night and kitchen not very big. Wouldnot use again

Wow what words could describe this place, the hostel its self is surrounded by industrial estate and deserted roads that could only be descibed as 'rape alley' felt very unsafe trying to find it. Went to check in and had to wait to be acknowledged at what we presumed was the bar? Manager extremely unhelpful, rude and with an absolutely...

The hostel was, as expected, a hostel. It's pretty clean & everyone is really friendly. It's not a hotel so don't expect an amazing boutique experience. The highlights of our stay here were the breakfast (YUM!) and the people. We didn't get a great nights sleep, my partner didn't sleep at all - there was a LOT of noise, music...

It is very close to the coach station and city centre. The rooms are okay, not bad. The breakfast is the best part. It is not the best place in the city, but the best place for low-budget. I would recommend it to anyone.

Was expecting it to be a really nice hostel as branded. I stayed for 3 nights Fri-Sun and we were put in the building next door which was in severe need of refurbising and the mattress were really lumpy. There was a warehouse rave on Friday and Saturday night which went on til 6am! The bedding seemed reused and it...
