    Great Hostel which meets a great standard from someone that is mature aged and has always gone hotel style but recently decided to discover a wider ‘world’. Only one grievance that I hope will not be repeated (discussed with desk staff) - that regardless of enthicity, appearance but in my case mature aged, one should not be looked over and disregarded due to ‘an image’ that a staff member redeem as ‘not worthy’. It is that ‘invisibility’ that deeply hurts!!!! Your understanding is appreciate.

    Delightful hostel with a great location. Loved that there were individual lockers and the place was kept really clean. Staff were not friendly or overly helpful. Definitely recommend.

    Our room was nice and spacious but there was just a few things about our stay that bothered me. The bathroom smells horrendous. It must be full of mildew. I had to hold my breath every time I went in. People were coming into their rooms all through the night and even though I had a private room I could hear them because they were so loud and the doors were constantly being slammed. I could also hear everything going on outside it was as if there were no window at all. Definitely an olderhostel.

    Stayed in a pod room, which was good for privacy. The pod beds were much more spacious than expected and lockers were a good size. Staff were very friendly and the hostel was clean. The showers got quite dirty quite quickly due to the large amount of people using them, but if you used them soon after they were cleaned it was fine. Most people kept to themselves but the hostel does have nightly events to encourage meeting others.

    Friendly staff, cool electronic locker and a spacious bed,decent wifi. Though there were hairs on my bedsheets, and not much hostel vibe cause everyone doing their own stuff in a very private bed. But most important of all, SHOWER! you know Jack from titanic who sink down the ice water? That's me on every shower attempt, it almost always freezing cold, in winter, imagine that lol if u go shower in less busy hours then it got warmer but no where near enough. Decent hostel if that is fix :)

    My friend was really ill and was being sick. She was first of all accused of being drunk by a member of staff at reception. They also said there was nothing they could apart from call an ambulance, when I asked if they had a 111 service. The showers were freezing cold and the heating was on full blast when there were 8 of us in the room. When I went to breakfast they had also ran out of most of the things on the menu. Overall service poor, however it was a great location.
