It was disgusting, mold everywhere you look around in the bathroom. Dirty bed linen, a hole in our room door. After our compliant they offered us another room. It was a bit better, but also not what they have offered on their website. We didn't recieved a discount, so we left the hostel immediately. We can't recommend this accommodation.

Ok so this place was amazingly accommodating. The guys that own and run this hostel and the shire (Lord of the rings themed bar) were really nice and step by step showed us how to get in and where everything was and what was available in the hostel. The beds were cozy and the rooms were warm. I would come...

Has to be the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. Beds are old and uncomfortable. I would not wash animals in the shower never mind myself. Bed clothes are old and well used and they have the cheek to ask you to undress the bed before you leave. Yes it's nice on the outside but horrible inside. I wouldn't...

Hi, I booked there because of a personal recommendation. Sadly this was because of old times. Now the hostel is very dirty, the beds are rubbish and disgusting and during the early night, it is very loud because of other guests. You can hear everything because the walls are thin wood. Of course there was no Wifi at the rooms,...

Filthy discussting place needs to be knocked down and left that way. Smelly dirty rooms. Shower and toilets? Wouldn't wash my dog in them. Carpet, walls, blankets, pillows and kitchen all fit for condemnation. I would not send anybody to this place. Dirt!!!!!!

The boys at the shire (the lord of the rings themed pub connected to the hostel) were amazing. They were so friendly and accommodating we had a great time with them. The common room is warm and cozy with good wifi connection. Toast and porridge in the morning is yum. Rooms are clean and spacious and bathroom and toiled was...

It's really a good hostel, only very view things were not so good. It's sad, that there is only one toilet/restroom for more than 12 (?) beds and the shower needs a little renovation. But the guy at the reception was really nice guy :) (PS: We think that some reviews are a little bit overdone :P ) cheers

Simple and basic amenities, just what you need to drop your head and in a great location. Nice hostel staff and adorable pub next door called The Shire. Wifi doesn't reach some of the bedrooms upstairs but friendly staff and easy on street access

We stayed in a private room in the Sugan hostel. The idea is very nice: the shire, lords of the rings, mordor,... And the staff is very friendly. The establishment however needs refurbishing. Rooms are very basic and not very clean. The common areas as well could use some fresh paint and new furniture. Strangely, we didn't really mind so...
