While close to the train station, it is a bit of a walk into town. The facilities are good except for the fact that there were only four toilets for seven rooms that weren't regularly checked for cleanliness. And paying 5 pounds a day for wifi was not good. Staff and resturant was good though. Worst was the fact that the bunks are only 80cm wide which meant I hit my knee everytime I turned over. I was also there with a school group who seemed to take over the place.
The hostel is very modern and clean, they have a well equipped modern kitchen and the staff was nice. The location is not the best, because you have to walk quite long the got to the city centre and almost 30-40 minutes in total to get to the main attractions (like Kings College). Also the room gets quite warm during the night. There was a fan but it didn't help and was a bit noisy.
One of the best hostels I've stayed so far. Location is ok, close to train station. Facilities are amazing, tidy and very good value for money. Staff friendly and welcoming. Breakfast is just spectacular; be aware you have to pay on top of the staying fee, but the buffet is worthy. Nothing is perfect though. there is no free WiFi unless you are member of YHA society. You have to pay £5 to get one day internet what is ridiculous nowadays that even my grumpy neighbour offers free wifi surfing!
