    Property condition


    They had a pipe burst with no shower water for days we left early. The carpet was very old and beds hard. Staff was very nice and friendly.

    OK hostel in central location

    Best part of this accommodation is the location! Central to nightlife, restaurants and citysightseeing hub. Facilities are not the greatest but cheap enough to look past. Overall decent hostel with a great view!

    Stayed 9 nights in Apr. 2018

    5/5 Excellent

    very central location and the standard of accommodation was high and good value for the price. Least said about the neighbourhood the better , although it is probably safer than it first appears .

    Stayed 5 nights in Mar. 2018
