With all the people, the environment, and activities at Sir Toby's Hostel, it is not a surprise that the hostel has the highest ratings; we expect that it will stay that way for a time to come.
On the other side of the river to the old town, but close to the trams to take you there, you will find Sir Toby's, nestled in among a more local feel than your average touristy locations. It will literally take you ten minutes on a tram to get to the downtown area or the local bus station, and you will find shops for food and other basic amenities around the area within walking distance to the hostel.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The rooms here at Sir Toby's have a rustic feel to them with heaps of space and super high ceilings. Because of this, you will find three-tiered bunk beds (if you plan on going out and getting really drunk while you are here, we highly recommend asking for a bunk bed that isn't on the very top!). Each of the bunk beds has three locking boxes, in which you can put your stuff and keep your valuables safe. There are multiple bathrooms on each level with the rooms and they are clean and have loads of space too.
The largest and best area to hang out and meet people is in the lounge area downstairs in Sir Toby's Bar. Even if you aren't drinking in the bar, you can hang about here and chat with the staff and other guests, cook a meal in their kitchen, and relax. They also have theme nights of quizzes, movies, crepe nights, and occasionally they offer food for a cost as well. It has a super relaxed vibe and a really earthy feel to the rooms. Also upstairs in the reception area, you will find free-to-use computers (from which you can print things) and an array of other information on things to do in the area.
The staff here at Sir Toby's are super friendly and lovely people and they will help you with anything that you need during your stay including transport tickets for the local trams. This is an excellent hostel! Definitely stay here!
