Fantastic little hostel ideally located within a few minutes walk of all major transport links. Right in the heart of the city in Grainger Town, easy access to all city centre attractions, shopping and dining as well as convenient to travel further afield being within spitting distance of the train station and metro. Decor is a little quirky, with the...

We only stayed for one night but was pleasantly surprised. It was clean, comfortable and warm. It's very basic and perfect for a cheap central stay in the city. The shared bathroom facilities could be better. The shower I used was cold and the water took an age to drain. Would I stay here again? No but that's just my...

I love staying in hostels, this one is located not only within 3 minutes walking distance from train station, it's also in geek triangle of death (it's located between two comic book shops and geek cafe on the other side of the street). It has very friendly staff (Hello Craig!), spacious kitchen and living room. Wifi only works in certain...

Very basic and the pool table needs a new cloth. But what can you expect for this price? Good location allowing easy access from the train station and equally a very short walk to many of the city's best night spots

I managed to get lost after leaving the bus and was shocked (and relieved) to see how central the hostel was. Staff were very friendly and helpful, rooms were very warm and beds very comfortable (the wall art was a nice touch). I would definitely stay here again, it's at most three minutes walk from the train station and ten...

I stayed here one night on a Saturday. Great central location (you can hear the revellers on the street if in the dorms at the front of the hostel), the staff were great and very friendly, and everywhere was very clean.

Very central location, easy to walk all around the city. The hostel was clean, beds comfortable and the staff were really friendly and helpful. There is a large communal kitchen and lounge with free tea/coffee and toast which was great. It was quite noisy but we were there on a Saturday night so lots of groups coming in from nights...

Great location, staff were quality, clean and friendly atmosphere. All in all a pretty nice hostel. Shame the trip was compromised by a few idiots staying in our dorm, but that can happen anywhere! Staff were extremely helpful, free tea and coffee was a nice touch and a shout out to the iconic wall art which we found very fun.

I stayed here for just one night and found the bed to be comfortable, the hostel to be clean and most importantly the shower was good.
