  • I found the accommodations to be very poor. The establishment in general was disappointing and very unkept. Walls were dirty, as were the bathrooms. I'll be thankful if I don't end up with a foot infection from the showers. The rooms were very small and mine had 4 people living in it for an extended period which meant that the smell was horrendous- I'm not exaggerating when I say I avoided returning only for sleep as I was so uncomfortable with the condtion.

  • The bed was terrible: it had a saggy matras and the bedding smelled used. The restrooms and showers were unclean. Even backpacker hostels should meet some basic hygiene standards. Five pounds for a "real english breakfast" that you had to prepare yourself. Really? Go down the road add an extra 3 pounds and you'll have yourself a fantastic English breakfast at one of the pubs. I've had far better experiences at other hostels for a lot less money.

  • Decent all around, though better ventilation in the bathrooms would be great. I was annoyed at the requirement to pay 2 pounds nonrefundable to leave my bags for a few hours after check out (not placed in a secure location, just near the desk). Staff was not that helpful, and was hard to understand at times, but the facility was great, clean, and a solid value for the neighborhood.
