I recently stayed here with my boyfriend. We had a private room upstairs. The entire hallway smelled of mold. The bathroom had black mold all over the ceiling. Beds were comfy surprisingly. Wouldn't stay here again unless I was desperate.

We stayed here in a private room. Staff was friendly. Room was clean, comfortable, had good pillows, & a great location. Bathroom near our room was shared but I never had to wait to use it- nothing special but clean. Nice to have the shared kitchen to store any leftovers we brought back. Lack of free parking was a negative... More

Comfy rooms, very friendly staff. Bathroom was a no go.. Female and male showers were together. Very weird. Free wifi was a plus and the location was also very beautiful. Wouldn't recommend it but wouldn't NOT recommend it either.

The hostel is located quite near to the castle, takes about 8 minutes to walk from High Street. Standard 8ppl dorm was quiet and clean and beds were nice. Bathroom in the corridor is unisex. The common area is really cosy but I have to say that the staff didn't make me feel welcome. Their office was in the corner... More

The hostel is pretty well situated not in the very centre of town but not far either. Just nice and quiet area. Very easy to get anywhere from there. Staff were friendly and the showers etc was is good order too. Glad we choose it

Loved the ambiance and how Bazpackers was conveniently located. Also had a great kitchen and hangout room, also back yard for hanging out and grilling. I traveled by bicycle and was able to leave my bike in the garden--outdoors.

My 4 friends and I stayed in the apartment of the hostel, it had a great location as it was a 10-15 minute walk to the train station and near the main part of town. Would highly recommend it if you are on a budget and are looking for good value/location.

I stayed at the hostel for one night and was welcomed by friendly and helpful staff. The female dormitory was nice and clean, the bed comfortable with a view of the hills and the river. The bathroom is clean but quite small. The common areas are cosy and there's a decent kitchen and excellent wifi even in the dormitories. The... More

after meeting the guy at reception, he took us to a house which is 3-4mins walk from the hostel, that house has 2 rooms with 4 beds each. Nothing like a hostel, no kitchen. the check out was quite easy, just drooping the keys. No parking ;( if you have a car you need to find a roadside parking.
