One of my all time favourites.  The beat is sick, there's some great burns in this one and Key and Peele nail it.

The original (non-Fatboy Slim-remix) version is actually really chilled.  Can't believe I only just discovered it.  Awesome

Nice natural lull after the last joke and part of the story, laughter dies down, perfect place to stop the video.  "Nah, I'll wait until he's JUST started speaking again"

Anyone in Bedford fancy bringing a poor chap with a broken car a glass of water?

Got to give Plus another chance. I don't really make the most of its potential.

I can only comment as a night-time venue as I've been here twice and both times were nights out. In that regard, it is horrific! The venue isn't really the problem, it's the people that go there.Being about the only place open after 11:30pm means it is absolutely bursting with obnoxious drunks looking for anywhere that will still serve them alcohol. The main room, where the bar is located and through which you must venture to get anywhere else is a gauntlet of spilled drinks, angry drunk men and stumbling women but worse is just how full the place is. It is shoulder to shoulder and the atmosphere is sweaty and bad-tempered. The music is that special kind of loud where it's trying to compete with all the shouting which in turn is trying to compete with IT. Having the bar literally next to the DJ makes ordering drink a complete farce, I really felt for the staff.The toilets are at the far end of the main room, getting to them is a herculean task and when you manage it, it isn't pretty.If you find yourself in Ely at midnight and in need of somewhere to drink, I'd strongly advise you avoid this place. Go home and re-evaluate your priorities instead.

We did the zookeeper for the day experience here and it was one of the best days I've ever spent! The keepers are friendly and very knowledgeable and happy tor chat away about the animals, the job and the zoo itself. I was surprised how young all the keepers were and yet they were incredibly professional and obviously cared a great deal about the animals. The animals themselves are obviously very happy and well cared for and the experience was just ace. We hand fed lemurs, giraffe, sea lions, penguins and tigers, watered the chimps, flew an owl and a kestrel, played with the tapirs, saw a lot of the 'behind the scenes' work and generally just had a great day. The zoo has a few run down areas due to listed buildings etc but most of it is beautiful especially with the castle on the grounds; that's quite special. Where it matters, the animal welfare, they are doing the most incredible job here. I highly recommend this zookeeper for the day experience or just a trip to the zoo in general. It is on the hillside so can be quite tiring and might not be for you if you have mobility issues but that's about all I can say that's negative.

It's difficult to be too harsh on a place that aims to be so basic but it does have problems, even for a cheap hostel. Firstly, as all the other reviews have said, the heat! It was unbearable. On the 5th floor in a room of 8 guys I literally couldn't sleep until it cooled down at about 3am but then it got hot again about 6am. They at least need to provide a couple of fans per room or invest in some kind of air con. I'd happily pay a few more Euros a night for that. It was also pretty noisy. Other rooms wouldn't shut up and the street noise through the one tiny window (which obviously had to stay open) was annoying but I had earplugs so I coped. I highly recommend brining some if you stay here. The rooms were clean as were the toilets and showers though the shower dial becomes a safe cracking exercise to keep a comfortable temperature once someone gets in the one next to you. The staff were helpful with directions and ordering taxis etc. The location is fantastic and by far this hostel's biggest selling point. You can explore all over Barcelona and some great bars, restaurants and clubs are just a few minutes walk. Overall, ok for backpacking, students or stag parties (like ours) but if you can't function without a decent nights sleep, don't come here.

Between this and 'Nevermind' the grunge bar market is sewn up in Barcelona. The decor is perfect, slightly dark ambience, graffiti'd walls and all topped off by a zombie mannequin sitting on the toilet with a guitar! Drinks and cocktails are well priced though the mojitos are pretty dire so avoid them. Great atmosphere and music and everyone was really friendly. I wish the atmosphere in these kinds of bar was like this back in England.

Not sure what happened for some of these reviews but our experience was excellent. The staff are warm and friendly and very helpful, the room was a little warm but it was a muggy evening and they had provided a large fan so that was ok. The hotel facilities are excellent, we spent some time in the pool which is a nice 25m job and was clean and well maintained. The changing area was large and with good showers in individual cubicles. We ate in the Verve dining room for dinner and the food was good value as they had a deal on (3 courses for two people, £29) and it was tasty and well cooked. We also had the included breakfast, the cooked part of which was being freshly turned around regularly and which also included pastries and fruit. All in all this was a relaxing and enjoyable stay and we'll definitely be back.

Pretty standard bar really, didn't feel very Irish at all. Fairly reasonable prices, the atmosphere was friendly and the staff were good, speaking excellent English and serving quite quickly but otherwise it's just a good place to get drunk which, being on a stag weekend, we did.

This is a brilliant grungy rock bar. Everything that description might conjur up in your mind is spot on. It's dirty, dark, plays loud punk/rock/grunge music and I absolutely loved it. Drinks are reasonably priced and there is free popcorn! The staff are nice and the other drinkers in there were actually very friendly too, not like these kind of places back in England! If you like proper music like Offspring, Foo Fighters, Nirvana etc then this is a great bar.
