7.8.Good.

    Well located for the station and city

    It doesn't help my stay coincided with roadworks connected to the light rail extension, but it was noisy all night, no air conditioning I could really detect, not super comfortable beds either. Service was fine, and the shared bathroom was opposite the dorm, 210 in my case, with decent showers. Really convenient for the station, and the city centre, and unlike many hostels it has a lift which was handy

    The hostel was pretty run down. The air conditioning and the bed were pretty good. The kitchen had an area with couches and outlets, but it was in the basement. Right at the elevator, there was a foul smell so I didn't want to do my laundry down there. The staff was friendly.
