“Great deal!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2007

The rooms are very basic, but they have a sink. It is in a good location off the main street in a courtyard, with friendly and informative staff, clean unisex bathrooms, and for a good price. The only minor downsides were having to pay for the towels and the rather bland breakfast. The breakfast was only cereal, toast and coffee, however, there was an English breakfast available at a reasonable price. One big plus that really impressed us was the availability of free soy milk with cereal instead of cow's milk! Overall, this place was just what we were looking for!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2007

I had a single room for three nights. It was spartan, and the mattress was a little lumpy, but it was clean and had a sink in the room. My room was at the back, 2nd floor, and there wasn't a lot of noise from outside, although hallway noise did make it in.

The shared bathroom was no problem, and it was clean, good showers.

The location is nice, walkable from the train or bus and close to the attractions.

They let me leave my bags during the day after I checked out. Breakfast was fine, nothing special, but edible.

There was a nice cat outside in the courtyard most mornings. There's a charity shop around the corner, some nice nearby pubs, and it's not far from the shrinking bohemian section of town.

  • Liked — cheap single room
  • Disliked — hallway noise

I stayed for one night during Easter this year. The hostel was clean, bright and quiet.

Great location tucked off the main streets in a sunny courtyard. Many rooms look out onto this.

We stayed in a twin room. The beds were quite narrow but adequate. The matresses could use updating though. Ours were both quite soft, lumpy and you could feel the springs.

The bathrooms were clean but getting on a bit. But no worse than any other hostel and probably quite a bit better than most.

The reception and dining areas were bright and newly renovated.

Breakfast is included and while the toast and cereal is nothing flash, its free so great value.

Staff were helpful and offered to store our luggage for free for an afternoon.

Overall a great little hostel and I'd stay again no worries.
