probably the best hostel we stayed in while we in the uk
not close to central london but accessable by train.ideal for our purposes as we wanted a couple of quiet days before we left the uk.if it had a self catering kitchen would have been brilliant
Booked a 8bed dorm on the website, got put into a 12bed. Asked a member of staff about this and they said that there isnt any 8bed rooms. Internet didnt really work and if you were lucky enuff to connect it wood drop off alot. The 'kitchen/common room' was tiny and lacking alot of basic things. There wasnt even any cups. The showers were good but didnt drain vry well and out of three toilets one was blocked the entire seven days and one other had no working light.
the place is thoroughly cleaned daily.really nice and relaxing place we were really comfortable during our stay.colin is a really nice guy and very helpful if you have any questions regarding buses the area or anything else that might come up and was happy for us to extend our stay.would recommend to anyone and would happily stay again
Loved staying here. good rooms, kitchen/dining and lounge. Awesome out door area with a pool table. Such a nice friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Staff were awesome!! They even nailed a couple of bits of wood on to my top bunk when I asked so I wouldnt fall out and all with a smile. Great place to stay!!!
booked a double with ensuite on the website turned out to be just a double with a sink in the room with the communal bathroom downstairs. there was no lock on our door so had to take important things eg. passports etc with us everytime we went out. the whole place lacked atmosphere, the people were friendly which made our stay tolerable.
one toilet per floor and two right down the bottom floor isnt ideal as they are always being used.my gf had to wait constantly to use the showers(there are three male and 3 female)location is really good train station just down the road and you can easily walk round the town which is just round the corner
were able to store our bags there as we arrived before check in which was good.met all our requirements and not far from central city.one of the cheaper stays to which is always good
great views nice location.great value for money.enjoyed our stay
if you are after a good nights sleep on fri or sat dont stay here the other guests will wake you up throughout the night.if your after somewhere to sleep after a night out - ideal.completely different during the week than on the busy nights.owner is really nice he leant us umbrellas when we went out and is always friendly and happy to help
Not the cleanest. Toilets next to the kitchen did not look like they had been cleaned for the whole 3 days we were there. Toilet in our dorm was blocked alot of the time. On the last night of our stay we were unable to use the kitchen between 6:30 and 8:30pm due to a large group of kids. Tiny kitchen for the size of the hostel. Would not stay again and would not recommend.
short and pleasant walk to town center nice pub across the road and in general a pleasant place to stay
AVOID !!! This hostel has been the WORST we have stayed in since we arrived in the UK. Upon arrival, rung bell and 'manager' emerged from the room that he put us in? Strange?In a room with 3 long term rez,room was a pig-sty and was left unlocked with our stuff in it.Lockers didnt lock.Fridges dirty,our milk was stolen.Dirty dishes in lounge and outside.No swimming pool that it said it had on the ad.All and all an AWFUL place to stay.Dont unless your desperate!!!! ABSOLUTLY THE WORST BACKPACKERS!
thoroughly enjoyed our stay.location is outstanding and staff are all helpful and friendly.extended our stay twice which wasnt a problem.really good value for money in comparison to other places we have stayed on our travels.would happily stay again
staff very friendly and helpful.stay was cheap and pleasant and close to beach
