    A MA ZING! Definitely the cleanest hostel I've been. The staff was very kind, they even knew my name within 24 hours. The sleeping pods are comfy and clean. Because of the dividing walls you have way more privacy and you dont wake up of snoring people. The breakfast isn't included in the price, but was definitely worth the 4 pound. Lovely staff, cool activities, good location, good price!

    This is probably the cleanest, most modern and well designed hostel I have ever stayed in. I would highly recommend anyone to stay here! The pods are comfortable with all your needs as include key pad safe lockers, charging points with usb and even mood lighting. The kitchen is clean, modern and has instant hot water on tap. It has all the pans and cutlery required. They provide breakfast for £4 a night with options of waffles/porridge/ toastie then coffee/tea/ orange juice. Sarah is great!

    Hard to say when I never got to stay. Called before I booked to make sure they were active, was told there is 24hr access to the reception. Got to the place just after 10pm like I said when booking and had no one in. In fact place looked under construction. I called over 10 times to only get voice mail each time. No one returned my call and still hasn't a week later. Oh, and they took my payment before arrival. Like, 40mins after booking , when it states on arrival as per your T&Cs. Want refund
