    Good location with a large lounge area and nice amenities

    Has only plastic, single use disposable cutlery!!! Very disappointing....... Bathroom in the bedroom (18 bed dorm) was clean when we first arrived as no one had checked in yet but was not cleaned once over three days causing it to get progressively more gross after accumulating 18 people’s mess over three days... You have to pay to leave your luggage there. SUCH A BUMMER when I already pay a lot to stay there Would select alternative accommodation next time

    The location is great. Internet access quick.

    I ended up in a room with people who ended partying late and I could not sleep for most of the night. The kitchen is lacking in basic equipment like butter knives.

    This hostel is honestly the best hostel I think I’ve stayed in. Huge kitchens, in room bathrooms, excellent common rooms with great vibes, an awesome bar and night club plus free pool and table tennis. Plus the staff genuinely feel like mates. Have loved staying here, oh and almost forgot! The location is awesome.

    Can’t think of anything

    It’s a huge place. The common kitchen is surprisingly clean for its size and the amount of people using it. Common areas with all the sofas are really comfy, wifi is great, staff are super nice and helpful. Good atmosphere and location, rooftop!

    - I found that 1 bathroom (toilet+shower together in one place) is not quite enough for an 18-bed room. - Staircases only up to level 2, higher floors only accessible by elevator (must wait because other stairway use is not allowed)

    Free pool table and table tennis Social atmosphere Plug, USB and light at every bed Good location

    No breakfast (pretty standard at most other hostels) Charge you for towels No curtains in the rooms so very bright All rooms ensuite with no communal shower so 1 toilet for 18 people! Wet rooms Beds have no ladder so have to climb on bed below to get up Kitchen closes at 11 Club on weekends so very loud, could hear it on the 3rd floor Have to pay to store your bags
