The hostel was good value for money, the decor is in need of updating but for the amount of time we spent in the room it was fine. The location was excellent and even coming in at 5am we felt safe! Would definitely book again

Simple and basic, but should provide clean sheets for bed!

Cold, dirty, drab and dreary! The staff were nice and has a good central location, but we stayed in much better hostels and hotels elsewhere for less. Glad we were only there for one night!

Great location, though only 1 plug in the 5 bed dorm. Beds not very comfortable. It would be good if there were more of an option for a girl only accommodation, I felt quite uncomfortable in the mixed dorm when it was only me and another middle aged man.

The lights in our room were broken as well as the blinds and radiator. There was no staff around to help us so we had to sleep in all our clothes and coats as it was freezing in the room and blankets were simply sheets. Was incredibly sick the next morning as a result and the staff said that they would contact me but haven't heard a word. To be honest the place is exactly what you expect for the price but the fact that we couldn't even sleep in it makes me wish I forked out an extra tenner!

The worst place I've ever been on Earth. I seriously think that it should shut. It is extremely dirty, it falls apart, everything is broken and they makes you sign a declaration in order not break anything! We were woken up by a fire alarm syren. Not sure if was genuine or just a way to kick us out of the building. But the worst thing is the the rooms are infested by flees. Seriously, they should do something for it.
