It was mentioned that hostel has linen, lockers and luggage storage. But it was not mentioned that we have to pay for all of that. If you want to use lockers in your own room you have to pay 2 pounds per day for the key of the locker. That's madness! The breakfast was not good, either. Just tea, coffee, milk with corns, toast, butter and jam from a plastic bottle that is probably was being used from the day the hostel was built. I would say the hostel is not value for money.
Facilities & cleanliness levels could be acceptable since the very convenient price matched with a good location. The main problem I had to live with was the CLIENTELE: mainly over 50s men, roaming around the room at any time, talking about how to get benefits from the government, sleeping at 6pm over their food in the dining room. That's a sure way to freak out any normal guest who's there to enjoy the city. Plus their hobby was to terrify people concerning laptops&phones recently stolen, etc..

As a single female travelling alone, I felt very unsafe and intimidated on this hostel.
