Latest Review

" Basic but fairly priced. Great location for walking around the city! Very noisy at night as theres pubs across the road that are open until early hours of the morning & theres only single glazed windows, but a set of ear plugs & your fine! Standard Hostel Bunk beds & cleanish bathrooms. Separated areas gave it little atmosphere. We had a car & the closet parking building was 20pounds per night so we parked at St James Mall Parking building & it was on 17ponuds for 2nights. (10-15min walk). "
