Only gripe is the cleaning of rooms, I stayed 4 nights in the same room, bins were emptied but no cleaning of bathroom. On the plus side, staff are great, dorms spacious, and view from roof great.
Lisa D. (June 2013)
Very comfortable spacious rooms with ensuite bathroom for just four people was great. Staff had responded to my request for a lower bunk and there was a notice asking others to this effect. Lovely clean modern hostel, great facilities, great location...
Helen C. (June 2013)
Great view from top level and spatial room. Facilities were maintained to inmaculate condition. Cheerful room mates shown respect.
Best value for money
