Overall an good stay. The only downside is that they advertise full kitchen facilities but don't provide pots, pans, toaster or utensils!!!!!


- On arrival staff did inform of how to access free wifi. - The room was located next to a very noisy across the street. Because of poor sound isolation this was a major problem when trying to get some rest.


The beds were absolutely abysmal, the bathrooms were filthy, and the showers were constantly clogged.


Reception staff were excellent. Rooms and common areas were bleak and inhospitable, beds not comfortable. Provision of crockery, pots, cooking utensils, washing up liquid and tea towels poor to non-existent. The entire hostel was incredibly noisy and sleep next to impossible. Floors creaked, doors slammed on their self closers, hinges squeaked. Loud music from the bar next door began around 9pm and continued til after 1am, people talked noisily in the street outside. I couldn't wait to leave.

It is four stories and the room we were assigned to was on the third floor without a non-operating Lift. However, they changed our rooms to one on the second floor making access easier.e . The staff was very helpful.

Very friendly staff at the reception, which is great However the room was very very disappointing given the price: small, no decoration, noisy, uncomfy bed... sorry but too expensive for this kind of facilities


The hostel has very good location. The offered facilities for very attractive price are on an acceptable level. Non-UK visitors should remember that they will need power connectors, otherwise you will be forced to buy them here. The main disadvantage of the hostel: sometimes noisy nights caused by customers of many pubs located near.


Great location and value! Excellent wifi service which is greatly appreciated. Cheers!!


Not a typical hostel, as it's just uni halls used as holiday accommodation in the summer, so no fun social life or anything. But I wasn't expecting that much on this stay anyway, just wanted a single room to myself for a couple of days, which is very cheap here compared to hotels and guest houses. I had a satisfying stay and got what I paid for.


Love the shared apartment concept. Everything was great except no lids for cooking pots which means longer use of electricity than necessary. And recycling bins would be great.


woken by people moving trolleys of bedding and towels round the courtyard at 5.00am


Great place to stay for location and ease of booking. Staff lovely and friendly and helpful. Only down side was the communal bathroom/toilet, not enough per flat. Nothing can be done about that....but very clean. Beds abit old but again that's life and for the price it was great. Would book again.... Many thanks
