  • The toilets are dirty, the corridors are extremely cold, there is no soap for cleaning our plates, the showers are cold we should have warm water especially during the winter, there are no mirrors in the rooms, if you share the room with another person, we should have two keys, and not only one.

  • Booked four beds in a four bed room. Got allocated in several different rooms. Lazy staff, very unhelpful. Long term visitors with lots of stuff in the rooms.

  • This is a very noisy house.Noisy doors, thin walls, etc.The furniture is very cheap and not very comfortable. One example: Only ceiling lamps. No bedside lamps, etc. Showers were not hot (temperature could not be regulated). There are other hostels that cost the same and are much better (in London!!!). I bought ear pads. Did not help much. It was really noisy.Many noisy Spanish people. Cleaning staff cleaned at 4 in the morning. Very noisy staff. Accommodation can not be recommended.Expensive!

  • It was a good hostel with perfect location - nothing special though.

  • No elevator (at least that I could find). I could not believe how much noise carried inside the hostel, I think perhaps I heard ever door close throughout the entire floor I was on and I certainly heard every foot step on the stairs. Made it difficult to sleep.

  • The bed was terrible. They changed the mattress for me, I can't be sure, but I think they merely flipped it over as it was no better. I used the towels and my sleeping bag to help cushion the springs that were almost poking through. The kitchens had nothing to cook with - everyone staying there had to go out and buy their own pots and pans. Not so cost effective for backpackers. The internet was terrible! If it was free it would have been acceptable. It was clean but had no atmosphere.

  • Aften a weekend at Abercorn I have been bitten hundreds of times by bed bugs! And now I have brought them to Denmark (I am still being bitten!!!!!) I both saw the small, flat and brown bugs in our room at Abercorn AND I saw its faces as well on the bedclothes HORRIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm warning other guests against using this place. I hope the hostel will take action against this huge problem.
