All round fantastic!
A fantastic hostel in every respect. Central location to the city and bars, and a sneeze from the train station. A well presented reception and common room, with friendly, engaging, and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the bed/linen comfortable and clean. PowerPoints and lights available bedside. The amenities were functional, clean, and ensured privacy. Showers had great pressure and hot water, great after those cool days. Wifi was reliable. The breakfast was plentiful and had a good range of options. There is nothing negative about this hostel; it is a fantastic operation! I would highly recommend this hostel to any traveller.
