Fantastic views from this ideally located hostel
Really enjoyed my short stay here. Lovely welcoming staff, incredible views from my room. Comfortable bed and large room with toilet and sink in the room. Close walk to the city centre and close to lots of pubs and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again

Fair 4.0
Ok, but could be a lot lot better.
Great setting, and decent hostel experience. Our initial reservation was lost, the rooms were quite shabby and a bit dirty. The bunk beds were made cheaply, and are incredibly squeaky and unstable. Quite expensive for the quality. Staff were very friendly. In all a solid 2-3 stars, but certainly not close to 5!!!
