If you're looking for private accommodation why not book one of our private apartments and you'll have exclusive use of the kitchen, lounge area and bathrooms. Our largest apartments sleep 12 guests and many of our groups book more than one allowing them all to stay together in one central location. If you're travelling with a smaller group we have apartments for 3, 4 or 5 guests and if booked privately you'll only share your kitchen and bathroom with members of your own group.
All of our rooms are modern and clean and each apartment kitchen comes fully equipped with utensils, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery.
Each of our apartments is made up of both single and twin private bedrooms offering you privacy if you're travelling alone but allowing you to be part of our hostel atmosphere as you can meet lots of new people in the shared lounge and kitchen - it's the best of both worlds. If you book a single or twin private bedroom you'll have the room all to yourself and share bathroom and kitchen facilities with the other guests staying in your apartment. You will also be provided with fresh linen and towels are available from reception for a small fee.

Of course, if you’re booking a single or twin bedrooms you will have the company of flat mates in the communal areas but there’s plenty of space. All bedrooms are, of course, private and fully secure.
