  • Out of all the hostels I have stayed at in Europe, this has been my favorite one!! The rooms were big, the staff and other guests were so nice, the common area was awesome, and the events the hostel puts on were so much fun. I would definitely stay here again! 😍

  • I stayed at Castle Rock nearly 8 years ago when I was doing my post-grad rite of passage. My finacee and I wanted to swing back through town on another European jaunt, and I was pleasantly surprised to find out that everything was as awesome the second time around as it was the first, even considering that every other stop on our trip was in a hotel. Major kudos to the team there for creating a dynasty of awesomeness.

  • Great location, friendly staff, good breakfast and a big kitchen / dining room full of activities and fun. Bedrooms can be a little bit noisy if you are close to the street and doors slams can also be disturbing during the night but my stay was great
