Nice modern clean hostel with a great patio. Neighborhood is a bit unpleasant looking but it is only a 3-5 minute walk to the old town

An area full of character(s)!
Decent place. Ropey area but fine really. Breakfast is a small pre made baguettes piece with choice of filling, coffee and OJ. Acceptable. We were moved to a dorm after 2(of 5) days due to an overbooking. Wasn’t ideal as the dorm was far inferior.

Good hostel near the old town
Good hostel near the old town. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the staff was friendly. The included breakfast was good enough. I'm not givint it 5 stars because the hair drayer was not working and the Wifi connection in the room was not very good.

10/10 Exceptional

We had a private room. It was super clean, comfortable, and luxurious. The staff was super friendly and helped us pick out some amazing restaurants for our anniversary dinner, and helped us call a cab at the end of our stay. 100% would stay here again

8/10 Very good

Convenient for river walks to City centre.
Reception was welcoming and informative. Efficient check in. Allocated en suite double room 14. Room was light and airy with two windows. Spacious shower (room for 2) Bed reading lights either side. However next to ladies toilets, and due to door gap, was subject to sleep disturbance during night. Room situated opposite breakfast room/bar cafe. Access via security key card to return to hotel. Hotel situated short walk on sloping road down to riverside with scenic city walks. They maybe concerns for lone person during hours of darkness, in vicinity of hotel, due to persons loitering in area.

6/10 Good

A great place for the hostel lover, but dodgy area
A well run, very contemporary and well designed hostel close to the city centre. Comfortable beds and excellent facilities. However, the property is in a very run down area where drug addicts and other less savoury individuals are to be found. Not a district where you feel comfortable out at night. A good place for groups of youthful people. Noise at night from indoor residents and outside from adjacent flat dwellers can be significant, so beware if you are a light sleeper or like an early night. Reception staff very helpful. Simple, but tasty coffee, orange juice and croissant breakfast served by cheerful and helpful cafe staff.
