Luggage room is not properly secured
Annoying and dirty.
Surprisingly comfortable youth hostel, helpful staff. Good value for money.
Noisy bar but luckily our room was far away from it. Noise from other residents coming home late disturbing at night.
The place is fantastic and the staff was very kind.
Location was good. Reception staff very friendly.
Breakfast was a bit like organised chaos and the kitchen and accomodation staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful. Also, charging £2 per towel per day was a bit ridiculous.
Room was a bit small
Friendly and clean. Breakfast included. Cosy. Nice building.Good sound-proofing.
Room too small, Lockers not big enough for small suitcase.
Very helpfull staff and some are even french speakers. Great breakfast organisation and good choice. Nice to have a bar in the hostel for the first night !
Having a big and comfy living room would be nice.
