    My second time staying here and it exceeded my expectations! Hostel is super clean, sheets get cleaned using professional laundrette so no bed bugs! (Checked out others around and they had a few complaints...) staff are super nice and incredibly helpful! Perfect if you are looking for a seasonal job! AND you get crockery, cutlery, your own box and fridge bag on arriva! Dealbraker!

    Amazing is all i can say. The ladies at the front desk were lovely and the owner went above and beyond to take us to a concert and pick us up afterwards. Such friendly people and super helpful. Highly recommend.

    Clean and great location. Induction plates are new to me but I liked how fast and even they cooked. Maybe they need more.

    We had a really bad experience here sadly. First off the place was really dirty, no toilet seat on the loo and hardly any kitchen utensils for cooking. The beds were really springy too so no sleep! A guy was very drunk, threatening girls and had a knife on him threatening to stab someone. It took ages to get this sorted out- he shouldn’t have been drinking for 12 hours in the hostel! There was no cctv and no full record of him on the computer- should scan passports! We felt really unsafe here.

    The location and the staff was very nice...but this are the only positive things I can mentioned...there is no atmosphere in the common rooms and the whole building needs to be urgently renovated
