This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My Daughter and I had a fantastic stay, we were well looked after by friendly and very helpful staff. The roof top bar is brilliant any time of day serving good food, hot & cold beverages, beer, cocktails etc.
The hostel is in an excellent location for access to the city and the buses if you wish to explore further afield.
Over all this hostel is better than many hotels I have stayed in and much better value. I would recommend it to any one of any age and will certainly return.
