Part from getting threatened to be beaten up by an older person for coughing loudly it was a nice hostel felt there was more older people staying here not many people in the 20's

Can't say I'm a huge fan of hostels and apart from a loud snoring room mate I was pleasantly surprised with my stay. The hostel is well maintained and looked like it had recently been decorated. The hostel has a relaxed feel, there were people of all ages and lots of family's. Lots of communal space which was never too busy. There is also a bar underneath for those looking for something more lively. Also couldn't be better positioned right in the city centre just a few minutes walk from the buses.
