I stayed here for three nights recently and I think it's a bit too expensive for what it offers: the rooms where overall clean but I found hairs on the bed linens and there was no toilet paper in the bathroom. The service was not great, as the window in my room wouldn't open and the personel never came to...

We stayed in a double room with private ensuite for two nights. The room and bathroom were small, clean and comfortable - what you would expect for a hostel. Our room looked out onto the outside area which was nice (it could be noisy if people were outside but noone used it while we were there). It was an easy...

I stayed here with some friends in a private room with en suite and was fairly cheap! Our bathroom door had a big hole in that someone had blatantly punched in which was not fixed! The en suite was tiny but did it's job and the bed was pretty comfortable. The hostel was in a great location, everything within easy...

This hostel was in a great location with free breakfast and decent room. Me and three friends shared a private en suite room which was basic and had everything we needed. Great for a two night trip where we didn't spend much time in room!!

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The location was in walking distance of everything. I was nervous at first to walk back alone in the dark, but it did it two nights in a row without fears. The wifi was good. The bathroom was clean. The thick front door with a hefty lock made me feel better. Breakfast was...

The female receptionist was nice and helpful, but the male one was not quite. Old facilities, not good wifi on 3rd floor, but overall still acceptable. Quite noisy outside because of the buses at night.

Stayed here in June. We got a private room with en suite and it was fabulous! Definitely want to stay here again! Thanks to the staff for letting us check in early so we could nap! Very close to the city centre, clean, comfortable, just the best :) My only complaint is we couldn't connect to the wifi in the...

This place was fine. It was a little cramped but overall not too bad. The wifi was pretty bad. It did not work in our room at all and we had to go to the common area to use it. The staff was friendly and helpful and we had our laundry done which was really nice. The location is right...

The place was nice. We were initially worried when the cab driver told us not to be out late because of the meth heads in the area and he wasn't sure about the hostel but we were completely fine and had no problems. The hostel is only a few minutes away (15) from the train station and downtown life! Would...

This cool hostel is a nice way to stay in the city on a budget. Has Proximity to the city and you can walk to almost everywere but it has a Poor Breakfast and Have to wash your own dishes after having breakfast.
