The giant TV shows all the major sporting events, or set up your own match over the pool table. You can also get delicious meals in the bar, or you can cater for yourself in the well-equipped communal kitchen.

I really liked the ambiance at this hostel - as well as the patios and places to meet other people. So roomy. Staff were also great.
