2/10 Poor

The staff were lovely and friendly and the breakfast was nice but the light didnt work in our room so we were in darkness and the window was broken which made the room really cold

2/10 Poor

This was an absolute dump...No nice way to say it! The entire facility smelled like vomit and mold (In fact, there was vomit in the hallway when we woke up). We left after 1 night. The staff did make an effort to keep it clean, but the disrepair was just too extensive. I've seen homeless shelters in better condition than this facility. I can not stress enough how poor the condition of this facility was. It goes without saying that it was extremely overpriced for the condition of the property. I would definitely not recommend this place to my worst enemy!

8/10 Very good

Fantastic location right on top of stellar venue. My room was a bit dull: I came back only at like midnight and everyone was in bed with the lights out, and no one else was up yet when I woke up at 8am. The hostel did sponsor an event for the guests every night so if you want to be social I think you can definitely get that here though
