8/10 Very good

Room was overall ok
The beds are comfortable and it was surprisingly quiet. Showers were a little moldy….

2/10 Poor

Terrible experience!
We arrived and had to wait 45 minutes for someone to come and check us in, than we went up to the room to find no sheets in the bed. I went downstairs to let them know and they gave me sheets to do the beds myself… I went back up to do so and when I turned around one of the blankets there was vomit all over it. I went back down again and the reaction was “ that happens sometimes” like it was a normal thing. Than there where also 2 homeless guys coming into the lobby to search through the trash cans and none of the staff said anything. Terrible experience!

As expected
Good stay for the price. Nothing fancy, but room was clean and spacious! Close to the main train station (10 min walk max) but on a busier road so can be loud with the window open. Overall good stay based on price and location!

A very typical A&O hostel
A very typical A&O hostel, though it was a bit further away from the HBf than most other A&O hostels. I had to move rooms while I was there and while the first room was large and spacious, the second one was slightly cramped. So, your mileage may vary. The lift doors are slightly fiddly to open and some of them are quite stiff and you may require both your arms free to open some of them. Cleanliness in the rooms was good. There was a bit of a crisis in the guest kitchen when the refrigerator defrosted and the floor was flooded, but the night team dealt with it promptly.

Clean place to stay, with helpful staff
Spacious clean rooms, though the walls are a bit too thin (one can hear conversations in the next door room a little too clearly) and the toilet and shower area can be a bit too small for a large person (so one is always bumping into the walls/taps, etc). The lift doors can require some upper body strength to operate. But, the place is clean and the staff are very helpful.
