          Nice hostel with great location and pleasent stuff. Breakfest was decent and bed comfortable. Bathroom could be cleaner but that depends also on guests so hostel could put some restrictions to guests to clean a little bit after themselfs.

          Hi there, My name is David Roberts and I am looking to book a hostel for 10-12 people at these times. I have looked at a number of hostels and yours looks not only the best on price but also based on your reviews the ideal place for us to say. I am writing to enquire about the following information: 1. Do you have a room or two rooms large enough to accommodate the numbers required 2. Will you be able to collect such a large number (our flight is arriving roughly 11am) of people 3. Do you offer early check in 4. What time is your check out policy Thank you in advance for your time and I look forward to your response. Kind Regards, David Roberts
