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.


Great location, very clean


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.
