Experience didn't start off too well. Had to wait a 3 hours until our room was ready, however it did give us an opportunity to see a bit of the city before we settled in. Found that some of the toilets were cramped and a bit dirty however I just think that was ours. In saying that, the location is amazing and the food and drink are cheap. If you want a decent pub crawl I would suggest going on a well known one. The pub crawl that the hostel provided wasn't the best and it didn't seem to be well organized.
