Poor 2,0
Really shame on you having like this rooms ! It should be hostel with bedrooms not prison to live with ! However the receptionist were nice and friendly.
AHMED, gb3 night trip
Very good 8,0
Good stay. Hopeless wifi.
Second time stay at the hostel. Really good value for money especially for a short stay. It is clean and staff was nice and friendly. Only thing which is lacking is wifi signal (which was frankly terrible and had no wifi in room on the third floor). There is no lift which was not a problem for me. Rooms overlook a courtyard which can be quite noisy late evening.
Charles, us1 night trip
