For the money it was a great hostel 10-15mins walk to town, basic but good facilities. Could have done with a basin in the shower room. Toilets were very small, but ok! Breakfast was cold, would not reccommend this.

Very clean and a lot of nice facilities. Beds were comfortable. A bit noisy since there were a few kids on a school trip and as a female travelling alone I feel safe walking back to the hostel alone in the dark s I would suggest a taxi. I would book with YHA again because of the tidiness and the helpful staff.


Excellent hostel, only issues were location (a fair walk out of the town centre) and the lack of lockers. Also lockers available when reception is closed is coin operated.


Very clean and quiet, liked that there was one outlet by every bed, but: Too far from the train station(s) and the center of town, and too few bathrooms/showers. Also, the wifi only works in the lounge...not the rooms. And no lockers.
