stayed here with my boyf, we were in a 3 bed dorm, our room mate was lovely (luckily) because the room was tiny. when we checked in the owner was talking to us about how he likes to 'blow'.. not what you want to hear straight off a plane. looking back we think the hostel is over priced, but at the time we knew no better. hostel is very clean. kitchen you can hardly cook in its so small, also small roof terrace. the place was so clique.. none of the long timers talk to anyone outside there circle and just make new guests feel so unwelcome e.g. first night we were to rooftop to socialise, all the seat out of the rain were taken, we stood there for about 10 mins before someone eventually offered to move up. sitting in the living room is impossible and people hog the beanbags all day and long timers/staff dominate the tv channels. hostel is right opposite indie travel so every time you come in and out of the hostel, they try to sell you something. they do have a good entertainment schedule and offer coupons for the local area. free wifi too which was grand.
