I booked this hostel after a few friends had recommended its good vibes, crazy nature and Mama's Crepes. I can understand why, and that is because this hostel ticks all the boxes for 'fun' ....BUT can I tell you now, it was the WORST hostel I have ever stayed in. The bathrooms were vile, and my bed smelt like the most disgusting stench of body odour I have ever sniffed through my nostrils. The security was undoubtedly horrendous. The door of our room, which was right near the front entrance, did not lock or close properly. The bathroom can be seen from under the door so creepy people would look under. The locker that was given to me was broken and there was no other option for me to put my stuff. Day two, 5am, we had random people come into our room and steal our stuff, I chased them down the street and eventually they threw everything back. I brought this up at reception the next day and nothing was resolved, and the least amount of compassion given. Also, the room was unbearably hot- please put fans in there. The positives : Shower was super high pressure- Amazing. Mama's crepes were the highlight and lifesaver. Mama in general was a super hospitable, and kind hearted person. The communal areas are great for socialising and meeting people. The boozecruise was fun! Pub crawl super. GREAT location. Atmosphere and people are why it gets 2 stars. I would not recommend this to anyone who puts a priority to hygiene and comfort over partying.
