  • I was quite frankly shocked with this hostel, for a start there's no staff present, you are given a 3 digit code to the main door and your room door (3 out of 5 available and are ridiculously easy) so felt very unsafe. On top of that, to pay on arrival you have to place the money in a paper envelope, write your name in a book and drop it down through a safe hole, in front of all other guests, no staff, no receipt, nothing! Very dodgy! My duvet set was very smelly. Terrible experience!

  • It's a nice hostel and really well located. Despite there being no staff there, it seems to work well. Liked the communal space though would prefer a couple of sofas to massive bean bags but hey. I'm not sure about the security - I accidentally check into a different room than I was meant to be in and the code was the same for both rooms. Should be different! Does the front door one change? Also this site was instant payment was by credit card but turns out it's cash - could you check your site?
