2/5 Poor

Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Cheap and nasty
Location is great. Just a stone's throw from the waterfront and many cafes and eateries. Problem with the hostel is they are attempting to renovate the place whilst still accomodating people. What I mean by that is there is still work going on in the room while people are in it. After a long day of packing and travelling I was having a sleep on the bed when I was interrupted by a maintenance person wanting access. Other people have told me they were still painting rooms with people in them. The man at reception is exceedingly miserable and reluctant to answer questions and even then minimal information given. Even when I rang the day before to check my booking He was confused as the phone is used for the hostel and the business of the bar next door. All facilities are very tired looking or broken and absolute minimum. Ripped sheets on the bed and very old pillows. No possibilities for even renting a towel. If you are wanting somewhere cheap and rough then it fits the bill otherwise steer clear.
