Just got back from a three night stay with three friends in private room 208a. After reading the reviews on here we went with no expectations so that we wouldn't be disappointed, and we were all more than satisfied with the whole hostel. The rooms where fairly basic, but the beds were comfy with clean sheets and the room was clean too. The bathroom was modern with a nice shower/wet area. But for somewhere to sleep you really cannot fault it. The bedrooms were separate to the bar and you needed to show your card to be let upstairs, or after the staff got to know us they would just let us up, but I felt more than happy with the security there. The bar was nice with a big smoking room for both joints and tobacco and a couple of pool tables. There is also an outside terrace which was a nice place to sit as it was quite hot when we were there. Only a couple of downsides, the terrace closed about 12am, the rooms were quite hot whilst we were there but of course it is not normally as hot outside as when we visited, and maybe a sofa or two to chill on would have been nice. Contrary to previous reviews the staff were more than friendly and after a maintainence accident resulted in the whole hostel being out of water, they came and informed us as soon as the problem was rectified. Location was fantastic, so close to everything in the centre. Would definitely recommend the Italian restaurant on the opposit side of the canal from the terrace, and if you are going out to smoke, visit the cannabis college early in your visit for unbiased advice on the best places to smoke.
