    Fantastic location. Really beautiful house. I was in a basement room so it was quite dark and there’s still work going on down there but I got a great night of sleep and managed to nap wonderfully—it was so quiet! Relaxing atmosphere, not so much a party hostel which is definitely my kind of thing. My only gripe was the plug sockets, my plug wouldn’t go all the way in so it didn’t charge fully but... glass houses and stones, as it were!

    Cheap but not so cheerful. Staff not very helpful and the hostel needs more lockers.

    Lumpy mattress! Sheets smelt of s***t literally! Showers either were fixed on boiling with no temperature control and so I burnt myself or there was nowhere to hang my towel inside the cubicle? Hooks cost a pound surely!

    My room was on the fifth floor, but there was no lift. It was hard to locate the room, but the staff was unkind about giving clearer directions. The bunk beds were crammed together--I could barely climb up the ladder. Cannot charge phone on bed. So not worth the 16 pounds I paid for this night.

    Beds rock hard, not clean, doors constantly slamming, no access to kitchen, poor facilities, not friendly staff, showers smell and lights turn off constantly to complete darkness, floor dirty. Not a pleasant stay at all.

    Whatever you do, do not stay here. I have stayed in my fair share of hostels around Europe and this place by far was the worst. rude and unhelpful front desk staff. Disgusting state of rooms. No lockers in rooms and they only provide about ten lockers (three of which were broken) for about 100 people. All of them were taken so was forced to just risk leaving my laptop in my room while the hostel is 'not liable'. My opinion is pay the extra £5 to stay somewhere friendlier and cleaner.
