The best hostel we've ever stayed in! Clean, comfortable and spacious. Well set up for cyclists with secure storage. Short walk from town centre and supermarket. Very well provisioned kitchen and good wifi.


Cosy hostel with friendly and helpful staff - everything seemed quite new and clean and in a good shape. Very central location, all though in a quiet and nice area. Could have had better common rooms and wifi.


Absolutely loved this place. Everything is new, the rooms ar very spacious and the kitchen facilities are great. The owners were away when we came but if they are half as friendly as the people who looked after it for them I would definitely stay again!


Friendly hostel, kept very clean.


This is the best hostel i have stayed in so far. It is modern and clean. It has more facilities than you would expect. The staff is so warm, welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere of the hostel is such that you could stay there and have more fun. The kitchen is neat and clean with all equipments. The breakfast is well made. It has the best location. 2 min walk to supermarket, theatres, all pubs and restaurants.


Outstanding in all respects Thank you from St Austin's C2C cycle group . Nothing was too much trouble even checking over our bikes before we embarked on the challenging second day . A fabulous hostel in all respects .
