Security was rather poor, as you could just ring the doorbell and enter the hostel, the rooms didn't have any keys at all. Location was okay, but the lanes/the pier were still some 15-20 minutes away. If you take the shower in the left corner, do not look at the ceiling, because it looks a bit gross and I felt like it could fall on my head any time. Staff was nice and helpful.


Really good value for the money!


Baggies was probably the loveliest hostel I have ever stayed in. It was very comfortable and all the staff and residents were so lovely. It felt very cultured due to the amazing wall art all over the place and in general me and my 6 friends had a wonderful time there! I recommend it completely! so worth the money we paid and it was literally at the sea front! I enjoyed every second so GO GO GO!! :D

Good location. The lady that checked me in was so lovely and helpful! There was no lock on the dorm room door or any locker facility in the room which was a bit of a concern, but the overall vibe of the hostel seemed pretty safe so wasn't too concerned. Has the basics :)
