Purple Nest Hostel is a great hostel to stay at. The reception is friendly and helpful while the activities are plentiful. Best of all, the hostel is very conveniently located, only a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of town and 5 minutes to a big supermarket. The rooms themselves are very spacious and the lockers are great! They were...

The purple nest hostel is in a brilliant location in the city with easy access to the transport networks and the park that runs through the city along the old river bed.

We stayed at purple nest hostel for 2 days (1 night). The stuff was conducted by very good and gentle people.

The hostel is very cheap, therefore the bunk beds were quite squeaky and the offered breakfast very low budget. Nevertheless the facilities were clean and the hostel had great activities to offer. I would like to recommend the free city tour. We had Sam as our tourguide and an awesome time while we learnt all about the city, its history...

It's a very central hostel but the bunk beds aren't very comfortable and there are like 3 plugs in very inconvenient places in rooms of 6 people. The breakfast is poor, with only one toast and some milk, sometimes there wasn't even coffee prepared at breakfast. Despite that, the staff is very friendly.

Hello! Thanks for staying with us and for the feedback. Everylocker has a plug inside, I am sorry if you didn't see it. I don't understand your comment about the breakfast, because we have 3 different types of breakfast, maybe you should have choose the bigger one, and coffee is prepared everyday. Next time if you have any problem just...

A lovely, friendly place but I would not recommend it for families. Our family room consisted of 2 bunk beds which were not in the photos when we booked the room. The shared shower rooms had some rubbish and hair clogging the drains.

Hello! Thanks for staying with us and for the feedback. You booked a dorm room, that's why your room had bunk beds. For next time I suggest you to book a private room with private bathroom. That's the best option for families. Hoping to see you here again at Purple Nest. Kind regards Director Nest Hostels.
