Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!
It was awesome! Super convenient if arriving by train and incredibly helpful staff (Brian is the best!!!) I worked during the days from the common room and honestly couldn't have been more comfortable. 100% recommend! My only comment would be to make sure you grab your own booze since they don't have any on-site for purchase but there is a store 2 steps away.

All round fantastic!
A fantastic hostel in every respect. Central location to the city and bars, and a sneeze from the train station. A well presented reception and common room, with friendly, engaging, and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and tidy, and the bed/linen comfortable and clean. PowerPoints and lights available bedside. The amenities were functional, clean, and ensured privacy. Showers had great pressure and hot water, great after those cool days. Wifi was reliable. The breakfast was plentiful and had a good range of options. There is nothing negative about this hostel; it is a fantastic operation! I would highly recommend this hostel to any traveller.

Great hostel
The location was really nice, only main inconvenience is there's no elevator. I stayed in the big room and it was good, privacy curtains and each bed had a charging station and light. The ensure bathroom was really convenient with 3 showers and 2 toilets available. Breakfast was good with homemade bread and it's nice that they offer a €2 dinner to enjoy with an employee.
