An ideal location in centre of town. The only problem is that it is adjacent to crowded pubs full of drunk young people getting sick and fighting outside in the street. Window wouldn't close. When we arrived the lady barked that only one name was on booking. I had booked 2 beds, but this seemed to be a huge deal, very ignorant? But some staff were lovely. No night receptionist, no security! So people made as much noise as they liked. A hostel for teenagers.
