    The building and surrounds were nice. Easy location to get to

    Wasn't clean, bathrooms were disgusting, common area and kitchen did not have basic facilities to prepare food, and the staff were rude.

    After reading many reviews I nearly didn’t book here but I was glad I did. The hostel was clean, modern and well organised, staff were friendly and the thick carpet made it all quite quiet. Excellent water pressure. The lockers in the bunk rooms were big enough to put 2 handbags in easily.

    There was no lift! We were on the third floor and there were A LOT of stairs. The light in the shower is also on a sensor so it went off when I stood still for too long. I also found it it bit awkward to get into the middle bunk as they are quite low and I am quite tall.

    Not be able to eat or drink in the bar unless you buy from the hostel, even because the lounge area is too small.
