    I really enjoyed getting to know the staff and lounging about the hostel, it’s a little far from some places, but still a fun walk in any direction.

    The hostel was nice and tidy. The only issue was that the window of our room was broken and we couldn’t close it. The stuff provided us extra duvets for the night.

    Cleanliness needs an improvement. Staff seem to be less experienced than the last time I stayed. Hopefully with some time, this hostel will be back up to the standard I'm familiar with.

    This hostel has become a place to crash overnight. It comes with a good location and friendly staff. Nevertheless, The hostel itself is about to collapse... Prepare yourself to see holes on the walls, worn-out carpets/upholstery/ furniture, lots of broken lockers, etc. The whole place needs some serious refurbishment. The are no privacy curtains in the dorms anymore and there are no outlets/plugs for each bed, etc. It's not good value for money anymore (fourty-four pounds for Saturday night).

    The security to get in the building was good, however, in my shared dorm room, 85% of the storage lockers were broken. I thoroughly enjoyed the location and the staff, they were very helpful and personable throughout my stay. In opposition, the facilities and cleanliness of those facilities could use some attention.

    This is the most disgusting unorganised hostel I have ever been to. The bathrooms have mould every where and the water is always way too cold or boiling hot. There is no shower mats or anything. Kitchen is worse with only two gas top stoves that work and knives are too blunt to even cut vegetables. Multiple beds where double assigned, lockers didn’t work and when I checked in there was a clump of hair in my “fresh pillow”. Someone had vomited one night at it took the staff almost half a day ti clean it up
