Positive Reviews

Convenient location

Guests tend to describe the location of this hostel in positive terms. Both shops and restaurants are within walking distance of the property. Plus, public transport services are easily accessible for those travelling without a car.

Friendly and helpful staff

The staff who look after this hostel often attract good feedback among reviewers. Guests feel welcome and invariably describe the staff as being friendly and helpful throughout their stay.

Popular rooftop space

The rooftop terrace at the property appears to be a big plus point. Although guests also appreciate having access to a shared TV lounge, it seems that nothing beats the view from the rooftop.

Negative Reviews

Breakfast has room for improvement

Guests aren't overly impressed with the standard of the breakfast. Although the meal is complimentary and therefore offers some cost savings for budget-conscious travellers, breakfast is said to be rather bland and somewhat limited in choice.

Bathrooms can be a little smelly

A damp smell in the bathrooms, both private and shared, results in some criticism from guests. Although the bathrooms are clean, the smell is off-putting and is often linked to drains.

Property can be difficult to find

Guests encounter some problems when first arriving at this hostel. It can be tricky to find and even local drivers don’t seem to be able to offer any assistance.
