The staff was unfriendly and the bathroom in the girl floor was always dirty. Broken Toilers. Room feels like it's never really been clean and I question if they even change the bed sheets. Great for party-ers as they play loud music from 12pm till late and have a bar

Affordable and standard accomodation
Great location (within city centre, easy transfer from airport)
I needed a place to sleep for one night only - it provided what I needed. The hostel staff were very helpful and enthusiastic. I haven't tried the food there so I don't know how good it is. There are lovely cafes nearby. Great location.

location, bar and surrounds
Stayed a single night while in transit. Nice enough but a bit dirty. But the location more than made up for it and the staff were very friendly.
