    Really good hostel, it was clean and the staff was ok. The furniture isn't that beautiful, but for the price it's good!

    Perfect self-catering budget option for 2 during festival time, meant we didn't have to eat out all the time - we didn't mind sharing a bed. Great to have so many local facilities, and a lot of public transport options. Very helpful staff, and lots of options available for those staying longer also

    Must be run on a fairly tight budget, nothing in the way of extras such as. Soap, towels or any way to have a cuppa. But cheaper than the ritz I guess

    Clean, quiet, with helpful kitchen facilities and common room TV. The bed, however, was awful, making it difficult to sleep. Lopsided mattress, with protruding springs. Couples might opt for single beds or a suite.

    This place is fine. It's a dorm during the school year and they rent it out as a hostel during the summer. It doesn't feel particularly social and is a bit pricey for what it is but it's fine.
