Poor 2.0
Very noisy, room was smelly

Very good 8.0
Clean room, helpful staff, great price.
We stayed in a twin room with private bathroom and found it very clean and ideal for our needs. There are obviously no frills, but it had everything we needed for an overnight stay, the beds were comfortable and there's free wifi. The staff were really helpful, even letting us check into our room early so we could get to the wedding we were attending. All in all I'd recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a clean, functional room at a good price.

Poor 2.0
Came in to checkout late and wasn't able to get in. Some dude didn't let me get inside. Not able to get refund
Adrian, gb1 night trip
Good 6.0
There was no power in the sockets in the room and as it was Saturday there was no maintenance. We had to charge our phones up from outside the room and leave the door open for security. We were refunded the cost of our evening meal, however. I thought the cost of the room for the night was a little steep. The only plus I can say is that it was convenient for what we wanted and we kept reminding ourselves of this

Exceptional 10.0
I've had a great time at the Via hostel. The staff are very helpful whenever needed and polite. The other guest are well mannered and courteous. The people are friendly. It's been a pleasure staying here.
