Great hostel pity about the noise

Very good hostel in a good location. Room very cosy. Clean. Good kitchen and lounge area. Very busy when I was there. The only drawback was the terrible noise from the building work outside. 2 nights it started at 10pm and went on all night. Jack hammering right underneath my window. The noise was unbelievable. I got no sleep. Hopefully it will be finished soon but check before you book.

Stayed 4 nights in Jul. 2019
