The girl at the desk stole £50 pound out of my account. Cause when I checked my account the next day £50 was gone out of my account. All I can say is don't give them your bank details cause they pulled a fast one with me I was fuming. So I rang them up and they tried to say...

Great location, right on the main drag. You can see the castle from right outside. There's a cafe next-door, a few bars just down the road, around the corner from train station. Tesco across the street. The staff are super kind and helpful.

Stayed here for the Ireland wales rugby weekend, initially booked a dorm for 16 of us. When a couple of people could no longer make it we were told we would still have to pay for the beds as we were a group and had to book the whole dorm, despite not being told this at the time of booking....

It's a mixed bag, this review. So here's some context. Large group booking for a birthday booked months in advance. Initially the organising and communication was outstanding. It took a little more effort to get actual confirmation of my deposit being paid, but no big issue there. Closer to the time we'd be staying I had to reorganize numbers staying...

Stayed there one night in a female dorm, was very impressed with the en-suite bathrooms for the dorm, very clean and comfortable. Breakfast served was generous in choices and amount. The bed was comfortable and staff were really friendly. Spoke to one of them about me attending a gig in town and he showed genuine interest in the band and...

We group of 5 booked this lodge for a night. Though this is located in a prominent street, locating the Bunk House is bit difficult. The staff were friendly. On arrival we were told to produce ID cards for every occupant, without this you cant stay here. We were informed that the toilet facilities had a problem that day and...

The place did not reflect the photos the main areas were the hallway with the office, rooms and basement seating area. The site at the time claimed they had parking but the closest car parking is by the station. The basement...

even though we were the last people in our room to check in for the night we were still allocated beds that were already occupied- either through double allocation or people taking our beds over theres, then the staff told us to pick a free one. When we came back from our night out 3 of the 4 beds we...

This hostel attracts dangerous customers, and has poor facilities. I would NOT recommend this hostel to anyone. During my stay, there was a very disturbed man in our dorm, who made frequent violent threats towards ethnic minorities, and harassed several backpackers. I also witnessed other customers being kicked out for such acts as urinating in the hallway, and issues regarding...

Can't believe we were charged over £500 for 2 nights in this dive, 12 people in our room, half the "lockers" don't work, the toilets and showers are miles away, the place stinks, the linen is ancient. My first time in a hostel and probably last, pay a few quid more for a hotel room.
