This is a Trusted Review. Why?

the hostel is dirty, we dare not go to the toilet. This morning leaving the hostel, the water flowed through the ceiling .... the rooms are small and poorly insulated ... almost as much sleep in the street. Only the kitchen is well.

l'auberge est sale, on ose même pas aller aux toilettes. Ce matin en quittant l'auberge, de l'eau coulait par le plafond.... les chambres sont petites et mal isolées... autant presque dormir dans la rue. Seul la cuisine est bien.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was a shock...smelly...not clean...even the bedding looked suspect but I was informed was clean. The place was over subscribed on Saturday night with bodies everywhere, even on the floor of the TV room. The place has been totally neglected...However on a good note, it was cheap (I suppose that the is a degree of you get-what-you-pay-for), it is in a great location, the attendant (Mike) was very helpfull, they can secure bicycles and bags.

The place needs some TLC, and it would then score highly.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Our room's mirror was broken, and the blinds too. Beds seemed to fall broken, not very clean. Room number three was very noisy. Nice staff.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Good location near bars and pubs and a really cheap accomodation. The downsides were the bad hygiene, broken tap, the lack of warm water and dirty bathroom with no soap etc.
Another concern of mine was safety as rooms have no lock and keys and the place was full of people. The entrance door has a really simple number code, possibly known by outsiders as well?
It's OK if you're just staying for one night, which you spend more or less out anyway but I wouldn't stay there for longer or if I needed sleep as it's quite busy and right next to a loud bar.
