    The room was clean and comfy (and I had it to myself!), but there are no lockers. The pub downstairs is really good, the staff are friendly. However, the kitchen and bathrooms were very dirty. I had breakfast there but I wouldn't cook a meal in that kitchen. The location of the hostel is amazing! Right by the train station, just a short walk from town and in walking distance from the Sugarloaf and the Blorenge.

    The location was great. It was horrifically dirty in the toilets, shower and kitchen. They change the sheetes so it's ok for that.

    So the issue about the stay related to the dorm. The dorm was full when I arrived and so there was only one top bunk bed available however there was no access to the bunk- no ladder, no chair, nothing to climb up on the top. Attempting to climb up and down was quite dangerous. I needed to visit bathroom through the night where almost fell off the bunk. It was really the last thing I needed after an 8 hour drive to the hostel to have an unsettled sleep of 3 hours before leaving.

    The place is filthy. Kitchen for backpackers a disgust. Lights in bathroom don't work. Clean it up and it will be ok for backpackers.

    The place was not clean - the shower was literally just a hole in the wall. No security as the people before me took the key to the room and so... I had to share a key with the two other strangers in the dorm. Also no ladder to get to the top bunk so I had to scramble up. Very close to the train station which was good and only a short walk into town, but it's the only hostel in town.

    DO NOT STAY AT THE BLACK SHEEP. I have stayed at hostels around the world for years and this was the worst hostel. The black sheep is unhygienic, rude, and overpriced. 1) It had mosquitoes everywhere 2) a broken bed frame 3) one tea towel for the kitchen which an employee dropped on a really dirty floor than put back on the counter for others to use 4) it was loud from the bar downstairs 5) rundown facilities. This is the Fyre festival of hostels. This place sucks so much we left early.
