Great budget stay
Great hostel! We stayed in a twin room and a great price. Easy check in and out, very welcoming. Nice lounge area with bar which had pool tables and other play equipment. Reasonable bar prices. Also a children's area, working area and laundering area which adds more to the hostel. Room was pleasant - good size and clean, comfy beds and shower worked well. WiFi worked well and great location. Perfect budget stay for anyone who needs.

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Amenities
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
I've stayed at several A&O's and I have always appreciated their value and cleanliness for our family of 4. This property, however, was dirty. I had to clean dust and grime off the bunk bed frame before allowing my children to climb in. The windows and sills were disgustin. Someone had traced messages in the dirt. The radiator was coated in dust and dripped with food. It is clear that there is a culture with cleaning staff that needs to change. I think there is no excuse for not cleaning properly, particularly in the Covid era. Get you act together!
