Unfortunately by far the worst YHA we stayed in. The staff were rude, not helpful and seemed like they didn't have time for us when we were asking about the city. There was a weird smell in the rooms and the bathrooms did not seem clean, along with the whole hostel generally. Very disappointed as we stayed with YHA the whole way through the UK. The location is awful, and parking was advertised but it is just street parking you have to find yourself. Poor form, not happy.


WiFi facility should be available through out the building not only in corridors/lobby. Need to repair those fire sensors as we were instructed to use deodorants in bathroom. All lifts should be up and running.

Good to provide hot water but the supply is not stable all the time not much place for 6 of us to charge our electronic devices in the room -- and that's a security problem too, not having a socket near the bed lack of ventilation in the room, even though the ventilation in the toilet and bathroom is LOUD, it's not very good in keeping ventilation


Ok for a few days. I was lucky to meet a couple of nice persons


The shower was tight, but the water was hot. Insufficient plugs on the wall, but the wifi was working. Location is very good and the bed was absolutely comfortable for me. So mostly this hostel is OK, but not a big deal. I recommend it, if you looking for a place to sleep.


Didn't expect anything but you totally exceeded everything. Very nice staff and good value for money. Really comfy beds :)
