A few good points, it is very quirky and the location is excellent on the bad side - given the construction of the cells noise carries across cells very easily - the top bunk bed was very noisy - the rooms were small rooms and single rooms are just single cells - parking is first come first served and is limited to around 6 spaces and you permit from reception - the bar closed with no warning for a private function - breakfast starts at 0830 - the staff were pretty unhelpful
They thought I'd checked out so they gave a room key to some new arrivals in the middle of the night. They then came in multiple times to check I'd actually booked for the full stay, luckily I had proof - otherwise I may have been out on my ear!

This is really a jail ! You will stay stucked on a cell. This is not good for claustrophobic people. Not worth the money
Good complete breakfast (something that you rarely see in hostels) Original atmosphere : Worth a visit!!!
Great place to stay, had no trouble with anything. The only downfall was the light streaming through the cell doors!
