  • Walking distance from train, super clean including an immaculate kitchen, very accommodating and friendly staff. Breakfast was only self-serve cereal and toast, but people cooked their own protein.

  • The staff were not helpful. The hostel charges £6 per load of washing (not including washing liquid or powder), so they might as well say they don't have a laundry for guest use. The room doors don't look automatically as you go out, so security is lacking. It's also a big hostel, with many loud guests and little sense of friendliness.

  • In my (private) room the floors were sticky and dusty upon mynarrival. The bathrooms seemed clean. I could hear noise from the rooms next door. The bed was old and very squeaky and there is no central heating. I arrived late at night and my room was very cold. The heater provided worked very well though and after some time the room was warm enough to sleep
