I stayed here twice - first time in a twin room at the back of the property I think, this was fine.
My second stay was on a Fri and Sat night ..... whilst the hostel operates a quiet policy, the surrounding hostels/bars clearly don't. Didn't get much sleep due to the noise after 11pm, room was at the front of the property, it was too hot to sleep with all the windows shut. I had ear plugs with me - definitely needed. I was hopeful given other reviews about it not being a party hostel that I'd be ok over a weekend stay. Unfortunately the Kiwi Experience bus was in at the same time, and 2 of their members were in our room on the Sat night, 1 of whom was up for most of the night and then they both set alarms for 6am. I appreciate there's not much the hostel can do in this regard, it was just a shame to have had so little sleep for 2 nights running.
