Kitchen was cramped and falling to bits. The rooms led straight into the social area meaning people were watching loud films till early hours and could be heard in rooms. More

Extremely basic room, and under equipped fridge/freezer facilities. Needs reading light, a chair or two and a table as minimum in the bedroom. Didn't like the hostel very much, and poor value compared to others we have stayed in this week. More

Great hostel right in the centre of town. Walking distance to most facilities. Very clean with a well stocked kitchen, comfy couches in the tv room, and friendly, helpful staff. Reasonably priced too. Overall one of the best hostels I've stayed at. More
