Fantastic room. Really clean and nicely appointed. Location was excellent. The only disappointment was an inability to control room temperature without going to reception for them to adjust it.

Thank you for your review. We are looking into this issue in the new year and hopefully we can change our system within the hostel.

Nice location, but very noisy at night. There is a lot of people in the summer in the street, so I did not find it was a good place to sleep

Didn’t like how my room shared a belcony with the next room and was located above all the night clubs. You won’t get any sleep to after 3am.

Great location and very friendly staff. I have stayed there for 5 nights. I had private king room with the bathroom and the balcony. Room and bathroom unfortunately are very small. Bed was comfortable. Shower was hot but the fan in the bathroom was very noisy. And there was no switch to turn it off.So there was constant noise coming from the bathroom. There was also no place to to put all your toiletries in the bathroom.

Close to everything in town. Great staff and they were so helpful and accommodating. Room was comfortable, warm and quiet. Showers was great and warmed up quickly, especially after being outside in the cold. Wifi was automatically connected once set up. Only downside was the kitchen area. We didn't feel comfortable about using it appeared really dirty and messy. This is probably more about the guest using it and not cleaning it up. They left their rubbish, food scraps and dirty plates everywhere. When we first walked into the kitchen and the 4 big bins were overflowing onto the floor. The fridge stank of old rotten food and it was plain view of opening the fridge what the off food was. I don't know how to fix that, but it was really off putting.
