    The staff at reception were clearly very passionate and over & above the call of duty about their role and the principle of how low cost Backpackers hostels can help people travel and experience different locations. This seriously added to the fun of being there. More power to their collective elbows and I'm hoping to organise another couple of group trips up from Edinburgh as a result - fingers crossed that some of them are still there!

    Am only adding as a high percentage of Backpacker Hostel users will recognise this - e.g. ten person mixed dorms can sometimes be a bit of a tolerance learning experience of relatively close proximity with other not (yet) known human beings. However, few people do this for guaranteed uninterrupted sleep and the quid pro quo of (usually significantly) more money to spend the next day is a seriously compensatory factor in in this regard - plus of course it's an environment much more conducive to meeting interesting fellow travellers than in more expensive accommodation options.

    The manager was clearly having a bad day and took it out on me. He was so passive aggressive and angry that I said I’d just come back later, and at this he started swearing and I realised I wouldn’t have felt safe as a lone woman staying there, so left and had to book a far more expensive place to stay for the night.

    Bit of a damp smell in the hostel. No air flow in the bathroom/showers which makes me wonder about mold

    The location is great, just 5 min from the central bus station. The late check in is possible, but you need to apply for the instructions by youself.

    There was very cold in the room. All the building is quite old. The bathroom was not quite comfortable, I could even find any sockets there when I want to dry my hair. About the late check-in: we predicted the staff that we would arrive after 11 pm more than a week before arrival, and we didn't get any instructions. They had sent the instructions only 2 hours before we arrived, of course we didn't have Internet to receive them! So the staff guy was very angry with us when we rang the door bell. Not nice situation, it's always better to send the instructions earlier to be sure that the guests received them.
