  • Great hostel located right in the city center. The bar on premises is lively and has good food. No way to lock up your stuff in the rooms, which is weird, but it didn't seem to be a problem.

  • Great place to stay! I just love the style and atmosphere of the hostel. Staff was rather new and therefore checking in and out took a while, but it is the first step that is always difficult :) Great that the hostel is directly linked to bar/pub/restaurant facilities. We had everythign we needed.

  • If you don't stay here then you are missing out. This is pretty much the happening part of town and next to bars that stay open much later. It can get rather noisy because of rowdy locals wandering the streets just outside, but if you have enough to drink then sleeping is no problem. You don't stay here for a quiet relaxing time, you stay here to have fun and spend less money.

  • Love this hostel. It was In one of our favorite towns -- the only issues we had was our room was very hot and the window was very small. The bunks were uncomfortable so we didn't get much sleep -- but all in all its a really great place and we probably just had a bad fluke of a night.

  • Be sure if you are booking with the hostel and arriving before 7:30am or after 11pm that you notify them so they can give you the access code to the door. There IS NOT 24 hour service. I notified them yet no one gave me the access code so I had to call the emergency number on the door when I arrived at 5:30am. The hostel is clean, has a kitchen where you can store food in the fridge but not solid food. The only problem is there isn't an outlet for every bed in the mixed dorms.
