As long as you don't come here expecting a 5 star hotel, this is a great place to stay. All the staff members were friendly from check-in to check-out. The reception/kitchen area is cozy and a great place to hang out. The rooms are basic, just beds and lockers (but that's all you need). The place could probably use a...

Neeeever stay in this hostel! There are bed bugs in the beds. the bathrooms are simply disgusting, they are never cleaned. the rooms are in a separate house reception. one day, a strange guy, pushed us out the door when we were coming in and he ran down to the bathrooms. It is not a safe place and is extremely...

Did you get robbed or raped while you were here? No! so it is pretty safe! Sorry that we have 2 buildings and that seems to be a problem for you?

This place was as basic as it gets. Central, but not too much else in its favour. A lot of basic grooming is needed (toilet seats broken, tap not working, etc). The man working on the reception was incompetent. He gave us the wrong key for our room, and to every question we had he answered "I don't know" (Where...

I have stayed in Bluesky before and found it quite alright. I mean it's not luxury, but what do you expect for such a great price. I stayed in 3 different rooms during my stay. The first night was a private room for me and my friend. We had bunk beds and it did us just fine. We were situated...

Don't say here under any circumstances. Okay location but the state of the hostel is disgusting. The kitchen has signs saying you can't cook curry or fish - must be due to smell, which is ridiculous. The rooms are dirty and bed sheets module and stained. We found a rat kill kit under the bed and the carpets moulds also....

I checked into this place and paid for my entire stay in cash. Two days after checking out I was charged the entire stay to my credit card. I called the hostel immediately and was told that nothing could be done as the owner was on holiday. After three international phone calls I was told that I had to email...

The hostel is very basic and dirty which is fine for the price, but we were given a key which didn't open the door. This meant we were stuck outside until 5am when we eventually managed to wake up a staff member (no doorbell or emergency number). When I told the elderly lady behind the counter in the morning she...

I stayed at the Bluesky Hostel for one night after I went to a gig at the O2 ABC. I found this hostel to be very cheap and accessible to the city centre. It is a fair walking distance from the bus station (roughly 20 mins), but close to a lot of nightclubs, pubs and places to eat. For a...
