  • It takes 10 or 15 minutes walking to get at High Street and the main touristic atractions. It is very near of a great park, The Meadows. There is a very special organic shop just in front of the hostel. The kitchen is very nice. I liked very much my time there. But when I arrived the room I had booked was not available. I had booked a private room with doble bed and I stayed in a room with bunk bed.

  • Didn't sleep the best, the beds were not very comfortable and very wiggly. I always felt I was waking up the person below me whenever I moved. Other than that though this hostel was amazing, the amazing facilities far outweigh a mediocre sleep.
