The hostel is over a bar. During the evening there's no distinction between the bar and the reception. As well, on the check-out day, at 8AM, there were no one to do the check-out.

This place was not very good for the price. I think a lot of hostelers want something different. Not in a very nice place.

The private twin room is great! We also loved the cozy pub atmosphere downstairs! Wish we could have stayed longer!

There were dead insects on the bed sheets when I arrived in the room and lots of stains on the radiator and floor.

staff couldnt find my booking at the first. then I was assigned to a 3-people room as they said no twin room available but later i was told to move to a "twin room" with a heater that cant be turned off. That was room 10, never stay in that room i suggest There was a shower in the room but there was no privacy. There was only colourless glasses surrounded the shower.

Did the job for a one night stay, nothing spectacular but we only needed a bed for a few hours anyway. Location is decent, about a 10 minute walk from the city centre.


The location is pretty close to the center although its on the other side from Piccadilly. Has a nice pub downstairs. The room was very average with uncomfortable beds. The room was also very bright due to a street light outside and crappy blinds and smelt a little (like birdseed for some reason).


For starters, this isnt a hotel, its a hostel so it should"nt be advertised as a hotel. While the staff were friendly and helpful the accomodation is a disgrace, i havent one good word to say about this absolute dump and most certainly would"nt recommend it to my worst enemy.
