Most dirty and broken accommodation ever.”

They never clean up the shower and never clean their bed, bedsheet, and pillow. Trash dumps were made in the shower for all 3 days I stay there. The beds, pillows, bedsheets were stained yellow. I will never ever go there again. Would pay more for better hostel.

Truly value for money so if you’re a fussy traveller about fancy comfort- this is definitely not the place BUT if you’re on a budget and enjoy going back to a friendly ‘home, and sharing a dinner table with an international crowd ... then this is the place.

Close to west end

To be fair, I didn't actually stay here. Went because I'd booked and had to pay. Walked out straight away as there was fluorescent lighting everywhere and the beds had no privacy whatsoever, could tell I wouldn't get any sleep. Not worth the money either.
