Reviews

Excellent atmosphere, right in the old town, near castle and main attractions. Every evening is an activity and during the day a free guided tour is offered. Safe and modern in an historic building with magnificent view over the castle rock.

Awesome. Awesome. Awesome. Clean, secure, fun, friendly, central location. Great staff and facilities.
10/10

This hostel has a great vibe with friendly people. Pub crawl with Cain was kick ass. His enthusiasm for a having a good time is contagious. I am happy I chose this place, would definitely stay here again!
