  • We were in a 6 bed mixed that definitely should have had 2 less beds. Two people couldn't move around at one time and there was far too little luggage space (and there were only 4 small lockers instead of 6). Beds were rickety and not the best, but for the price we paid that was to be expected. Showers were questionable but at least hot water! Kitchen was really nice and we loved having access to seasonings for food! Location was decent, about 10 min from train station and 10 from Shop St.

  • A very good place to stay for few nights. The staff is friendly, the place is cleaned every day, your bed clothes are fresh and the kithen will give you a fridge and a big space to cook. you are in the city center, near the canal and some shops. I warmly recommand this hostel.

  • This hostel was sadly the worst hostel I have ever stayed in. As students, we only really used our room for sleeping. The bedroom was tiny (the size of a single bunk bed and enough room to open the door). There was no space to store anything which made moving around the room hard. The room was mouldy and constantly smelt damp. However the bathroom and kitchen were clean. If you want cheap accommodation then this is your place to stay, but be warned! I am glad I only stayed here for 2 nights.
