Was quite cold in room 1, I don't think the windows fit properly!

The hostel can be a little cold in the winter and we do what we can, however the buildings are old and historical. We always try and offer extra heating and duvets when needed. Thank you for leaving such a great score of 97%!!

The hot water in the hostel runs on a timer. If a guest needs a hot shower they can come by reception and ask us to get the water heated up again.

Very nice stay. Staff was welcoming and helpful. Pretty much in the center of St Andrews, minutes away from everything. HOWEVER I was there in January and it was freezing cold in the room, barely warmer in the common room, and worse at night. Apart from this point, good value for money.

Thanks for reviewing our hostel. During the winter it does get cold in this old building but extra duvets can be provided if they are requested. We want our guests to have a warm night sleep. Hope to see you here again but come back at a warmer time of year.

Really nice staff, decent wifi, rooms are a bit cold though (we were there in winter). beds are good, hostel is a bit rundown with tattered carpet, but the kitchen is very clean. The locks on the bedroom doors are annoying as you need two hands to open it, so you couldn't be holding anything in your hands. Bathrooms are probably the weakest point, just because they're a little bit dated and shabby. Shower drain was slightly clogged.

Thanks for your review. We do you best to keep the kitchen and the rest of the hostel clean and tidy. Extra duvets can be provided for guests if they are feeling cold during the night.

Good atmosphere and clean dorms! friendly and flexible staff who allowed us to check-in early and pick the room. overall, the hostel itself and its staff were bright and extremely welcoming on a rainy and windy day in St Andrews!

Excellent location, but poor Wifi in the rooms, and sometimes no hot water for showering. Great lounge and kitchen, everything else was good!

The Wifi signal should work everywhere in the hostel but some places the signal is a bit weaker. The lounge area is a cool place to hang out, chat with other guests and connect to the internet. The hot water runs on a timer. If a guest requests a hot shower then it can be arranged.
