My main complaint with this hostel is the staff. They are not terrible but are completely uninterested in the guests. It feels like a cheap hotel, not a hostel. There were a couple of guys working there who were genuinely helpful but they were unfortunately a minority and not always around. I would walk through reception and even checked out with barely a word being said.
After a terrible pub crawl we didn't get involved in the other activities on offer. Apparently we missed nothing.
I would go again as a high turnover of staff could mean a totally different experience. Not to mention the fact that it is just a place to sleep; get out and do your own thing.
