Located near a busy restaurant and bar street, this hostel has spacious dorms with comfy beds (each with e-socket, but no lamp). There are enough bathrooms and showers (both clean) and two kitchens. The living area was great too and good to socialise. Security was good with padlocks and wifi was fast, stable and free. Had a great stay.

I've had a really great stay here. The rooms and facilities are clean. It's a social hostel, where it's easy to meet new people. It has also a good location, as bus stops are really close and you can get everywhere.

Stayed for one night with a friend in a 6 bed mix dorm. The hostel itself very clean. Great location, cheap and cheerful. The room however was so small could hardly move in it, then when theres another five people in the room with you and six peoples luggage, you can hardly breathe let alone move. Probably wouldn't stay here...
