    Lack of privacy - windows faced busy common rooms so only way to achieve privacy was to have the blinds down all the time. This situation could easily be resolved with privacy window dressings that allow light in. Towels were a bit thin and worn

    Naomi P. (November 2014)

    Very clean hostel, lots of facilities, overall good experience.

    Emma B. (November 2014)

    Friendly staff and a very good location. Overall good value for money.

    Usman K. (November 2014)

    Friendly staff that can help with tours which is helpful. Shame about lack or free wifi in common areas and having to pay to leave luggage (an additional expense on an already quite expensive stay for a hostel).
