  • Checked in and dropped my bag off straight away. I came back about 11pm and found a sign saying if you need a blanket ask reception which closed at 10pm. I froze and got a cold. Would help if blankets in the room or upon checking in they tell you!!!

  • This was my first stay at a hostel anywhere! Was very nervous but ended up being awesome! Met some great ppl!! Was raining the whole time so couldnt enjoy the outdoor area but lots of stuff going on at night time! Not super close to everything but the free transfer into town was great! Its not far from town and I ended up walking there and back alot! Loved it all!! LOVED Smeagol!!! RIP :(

  • Amazing! This is the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The staff was lovely and so helpful. It was clean and comfy. It is about a 15 minute walk from town, but I actually enjoyed being away for all the chaos and I was never bored because they have fun activities every night at the bar area! Highly recommend staying here :)
