USB socket, for your smart phone or computer, fixed on the wall next to your bed is the best designed for guest's convenience. Staff are friendly. Linen is clean and set tidy for you.

Hostel was in an excellent location. The staff sets an excellent tone for how things are run there. They are very social and willing to help in any way possible. They are also very efficient and quick at helping you. The only drawback I might mention is that if you are not a partying person or someone who is not into the bar scene, you may feel a little out of place since it does lean a bit in that direction. However, the lower two floors are more quiet since the bar is on the second floor.

Atlantic was a great place to stay. The hostel was clean and central and the staff helpful and generous with their time. Excellent hostel, no complaints from me.

Everything is very clean. If you can, choose the rooms in the lower floor (below the reception) that are more quiet and has a separate bathroom. Nice breakfast and helpful staff. Excelent location: you can easy and quickly go to Waterfront, where you can eat, buy what you need and meet your friends.
