The whole place is in serious need of renovations. having stayed in similar priced accommodation this lacked the basics.Everywhere outdated in the bedrooms, kitchen area and communal bathrooms. We were given a fourth floor room having presented a health issue we were then moved to the first floor which was appreciated. if the staff hadn't have been so accommodating we would have stayed 2 out of the 5 nights but considered this too depressing to stay in and so moved to a similar priced hostel.


Pretty noisy from the road, but fine with a pair of ear plugs. Centrally located and helpful staff. Would stay again for the price!
