So the hostel itself is 5 mins walk from the town centre, 15mins walk from the transport links. Read the instructions that the hostel send you regarding the location as it's tucked away off the street in a sort of alley through a door. I arrived early and the staff stored my bag away and let me use all the...

Excellent location! Close to shops and restaurants. It was kind of dirty and loud most of the time (which is what you get with a hostel). The hallway leading to the hostel smelled of garbage. Won't recommend.

I was left dissapointed in this hostel. Initially my impression was good. The environment of this hostel felt fairly standard and the staff member who greeted us was friendly. My impression of the place was lessened by an irrational guest, placed our room in the second night who was verbally confrontational with a number of us in the room, and...

Nice place for the price paid. No bells and whistles, but it served the purpose of a place to sleep while seeing the local area. Room was clean, but a little dated. Breakfast was only toast and cereal and the hot water didn't last long in the shower.

The hostel has a bit weird entrance but mainly ok hostel. Good value for money and good beds and showers. If u just need a cheap place to stay then this is your choice. Open 24/7 was helpfull and they also have luggage room.

The hostel is in a good location, 5 min walk to old town square. Close to bars, restaurants and shops. It was quite hard to find the hostel initially as it is tucked away through an alley and up some stairs. The staff were happy to help with booking tours and with any questions we had. The walls are extremely...
