I liked the hostel. They have great structure, nice people and its in a great place. But they try to rip money off of you in every way possible. For exemple, they don't borrow an adaptor plug to you. They only sell. FOR 4 POUNDS! If you have to check out and leave your bags in the hostel, they let you, but will charge 3 pounds for something that is almost a favor, right? I hated in that way, but in everything else is quite good.

This is by far the most expensive hostel I have ever stayed at (I have tried +40 all over the world).You get very little value for your money and how can it cost £20 for a night, when breakfast isn't included?

Very good hostel except for the bathroom facilities (small and clogged sink, no drinking water, hair in the shower, no shared bathrooms on the floor to use when you don't want to wake up everyone in the room)

Too few wall plugs. Be careful, internet only works in the main lobby! The bathroom was not very clean (during three days). Coffee was cold (not warm, but cold) in the breakfast buffet. The staff was very friendly, I could check in very late at night and I could borrow an iron at no cost. Overall, it's ok, just not perfect. The location is excellent.

nothing really wrong with this hostel, just simply wasn't the type of atmosphere I was looking for. was hoping for more of a younger, backpacker scene; however they seem to cater to a very family friendly crowd. nothing wrong with that, just weren't many people to meet and instead, a lot of soccer teams and family's on vacay.

A part from being a bit far from the city centre, every thing is very nice there.

Mostly it was a good experience. Just two things that could have been better: -The toilet carpet was not cleaned for 2 days. -One staff had a very strong spanish accent and it was quite hard to understand her. But she was very polite, I have to say.

Nice place to stay great that they have parking. Decent place in a good area. Very expensive though on weekend nights.

Nice bar area to work in the evening. Door entry system was a little confusing if it's the first time you've been there. Otherwise, a good standard of YHA.

did not enjoy my experience with several staff members, quite rude at the best of times. location wasn't the best but that was no daily of the hostel but my own for not researching. older crowd staying at the hostel around 40+

It's a youth hostel with plenty of facilities (game room, movie room, locker, kitchen, washing machine). The hostel design is nice, with a good atmosphere. The staff is friendly and helpful.

weekday price is ok, friday/saturday price is extortionate. staff does their job, but are not overly friendly. the place has a very corporate feel to it, functional but not warm or inviting. the food in the cafe is good, though a bit marked up. wifi is spotty or nonexistent in the rooms. the door to the room did not fully close automatically. the bunk was broken and swayed noisily. many of the lockers did not fit regular padlocks. still, best option available. not terrible, not great.

Fantastic hostel! It's like staying in a hotel. It's clean and has great facilities! The English Breakfast is definitely worth your £4.99! In addition, y it is very easy to find! The only negative is that the WiFi is not very powerful.
