Ridiculous queue to check in. Towels are €5 extra despite us having paid for the linen package. On the plus side, clean, and an excellent location. It is what it is, basic accommodation at a cheap price just don't expect any frills. Or towels.

Fair 4.0
Clean building but very poor experience
It was a great building and amenities on the ground floor. The check in was extremely slow with no sense of urgency of people on the queue. Throughout our requirement for the service desk attendance, it has always been the case. But there will always be some random people on the back of the counter not taking account into responsibilities whilst they were present on the back of the service counter, we could see them chatting discussing but not attending the queues. There were also room guests that decided to have room party by blasting music on their self brought Marshall concert speakers in the evening whilst also chatting on the corridor where it could be heard in the room. When brought up on the reception they didn't do anything apart from claiming there are securities that patrol the floor, which is unfortunately untrue or else we wouldn't have had to confront the party themselves. There wasn't any apologies and they seem to just rely on being trendy and attracting careless young people so it had translated into their behaviour and attitude towards customers' approach. It was unfortunate and it was very dear per night stay, and very little back out of it apart from clean room and decent ground floor amenities.

Lazy litter bugs
A pity that fellow guests on outside terraces didn't use litter bins,ash trays and failed to return glasses thereby creating a blot on the landscape of the lovely park.

great stay :)
This was a really clean hostel with great facilities, comfy beds and 30 minute walk to city centre. I would highly recommend. One improvement would be that guests staying in the hostel should get a reduced cover charge for the hostel bar, 10 euros for non residents is fair enough but if you’re staying then a reduction would have been a nice touch and we would have gone in.

Nice and clean
It was pleasant to stay. Nice and clean. Staffs was very good. It's a bit far from the central in term of walking distance. Good benefit that the hostel is in the park. Love it.
