    It was a good hostel! You need a code to get into the main door and the bells weren’t working so I had to wait until someone got there to get into reception, but that was the only issue I had. The people actually spent time in the common room which was nice to meet people. I’m a solo female traveler and I felt safe, I was in the female dorm and made friends with the girls in there so we went out and got dinner and whatnot together. Overall great!

    The guy I met at reception was lovely, although I did only see him when checking in. The hostel is right across from a nice carpark that costs £15 for 12h and is free between 8pm and 8am, and easily accessible from the town. The Jane Austin dorm door doesn't lock, but the hostel was nice overall.

    Really great location, bedding was really clean and comfortable. Outside of the bedrooms some of the bathrooms were a little gross with wet floors that didn’t smell great. Staff were friendly, it’s fine for just a night. The bedroom was meant to have a lock on it but it was just open the whole time which I didn’t love either but the front door is secure

    In the essentials it's fine - comfy, clean bed, hot shower and well-equipped kitchen. Excellent central location and staff are nice. However the decor is very tired, chairs torn in the common room, floors (and everything else) in the bathrooms are uneven. Dorms and bathroom floors are rarely swept or vacuumed, if at all so are dirty. Lack of power outlets, coat hooks and waste basket in the dorms is inconvenient. Showers are in the basement and overall few facilities for a lot of people to share

    Really lovely staff but facilities were pretty minimal. Room was freezing so recommend bringing layers if you are staying during the winter. Bathrooms needed a good clean but did have the basics. The doors didn’t actually lock for the rooms so I ended up using my own lock on my bag for security.

    This is the worst hostel I have ever stayed in in my life! It’s was so disgustingly dirty we considered leaving as soon as we arrived! The room was so dirty, there were wrappers, used tissues, other people belongings left behind and peoples fingers nails on the floor, clearly the room had not been cleaned! My duvet was covered in chewing gum on the inside and the bedding in general was horrific! Overall an absolutely terrible experience and I will not return even if I was paid!!!
