  • I stayed for one night but of all hostels I stayed in the UK this was the only one I felt really comfortable in. The toiletts/showers are clean & functionable.The 8 bed mixed dorm was big enough and clean. I just had a backpack with me but you can bring a small travel case if you don't mind carrying it upstairs. Negative: just two sockets for 8 beds - multi socket would be useful Positive: free breakfast, good cost effectiveness Bars next to hostel cause noise at night but free earplugs offered!

  • Very friendly staff. Was given a quick tour when arrived. Lots of power points and pretty close to the city centre.

  • Nice to have a place that actually provides high-speed wifi, and doesn't just advertise it. I was a little surprised at the amount of noise from the street at night (I arrived on a Friday), but once I found the earplugs that wasn't an issue. Might be worth mentioning at some point -- maybe in the walk-through with people checking in on a Friday or Saturday.

  • Some of the staff was accommodating and helpful however that was not the case with all of them and that in itself made it a very unpleasant experience. A bit pricy for a run down hostel.

  • Really nice hostel that is near to all the shops. Everything was clean and they had a nice place where you could sit and watch tv or have a drink.
