Everything you need for a short stay plently of toilet and showers facilities. Buses into town just across the road and a short walk to amenites. Found it quite hard to get out of the building, maybe needs more exit signs also the bed was a bit squeeky.

This was an excellent place to stay. Very friendly staff, excellent location and view, easy to walk to from the station even with a suitcase (about 25 mins), and all you can eat breakfast in the morning.

Regular fares are far too expensive for the youth hostel standard. Breakfast was great
