I've never known anything like it. Again and again they'll keep coming back and flying in your face. That cork hat I got as a slight joke present from my EON colleagues now seemed like a bloody good idea!

    We stayed here back in March 2014. It has been one of our favourite hostels. The staff are friendly and the place is clean and in a great location to all attractions. The pancakes in the morning are AWESOME. Wish we had more time
