good hostel in good central location
Good location to centre. We were arriving outside office hours but they left a hand written note and map that we appreciated with the key. Private room was comfortable but outside walk to toilets and showers. Good hostel stay.

It probably hasn’t been cleaned I feel like they just make the bed after you (without fresh sheets) The smell was overwhelming the minute you walk in and there is literally crap everywhere.
