Easy and affordable”

Its location, price and friendly staff

We stayed as part of a group. We had 2 6-bed dorms that were made private for us. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. We originally had 18 guest but people dropped out last min and we were not charged any extra. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. Its location is very central being very close to Eyre Square and shopping streets. This hostel is ideal for backpackers or people on low budgets.

Very good”

A few big things I'd find fault with are: wifi on all the time is very bad for health and there's no way out of it unless you leave the hostel. The fact that this is so common or that it is expected by people does not justify its use, in fact all the more reason why any particular establishment should make sure they don't have it. Another complaint I have is the beds in the dorm. They are not long enough for me and have bars all around so I could not stretch out and found it hard to sleep. Also having some shelving built into the bed frame or else on the wall especially for the top bunk as there is nowhere to put anything. I'd suggest having lockers for each guest would be good, maybe instead of the luggage storage room, but those lockers should be well monitored by cctv too. Would be good to have the option of a dorm with more ventilation. Mixed male/female dorms are a bad idea.

Weird”

Room was cold with no heater. There was the smell of mildew in the air from the precipitation that collected on the walls at night and soaked into the carpet. And I pointed out that I was cold because of the room to a man that worked there and his response to me was, "No, you're not.". It was aggrivating.

Très bonne adresse de backpacker”

Idéalement situé, le personnel est extrêmement disponible, serviable, sympathique, l'auberge de jeunesse est propre et les petits plus (thé/café gratuit à volonté, pain/céréales/confiture le matin) sont très appréciables ! L'ambiance est jeune, top, décontractée, la literie et la salle de bain sont très correctes. Je n'attribue pas 5 étoiles car le prix est tout de même légèrement élevé pour ce que c'est (15-20€ de moins auraient rapportés 1 étoile en plus). Mais, clairement, nous recommandons cet établissement sans hésiter pour autant.
