    Hostel has pretty much everything you needed- not a big fan of New Brighton but very close to the beach- bit of an odd vibe because of a really mixed age range. Beds were comfy but only one ladder to share between four bunk beds(had to attach it to your bed if you wanted it).

    What can I say, they certainly like their rules. This school building is covered in warnings. One misstep will result in a fee, and that doesn't set the best atmosphere. You get another set of rules with tons of fee warnings on a paper when you check in, so tread carefully. It didn't help the cleanliness in the kitchen much though. Unwashed dishes and random food leftovers everywhere. It's set in a nice area at the beach though, I'll give them that. But yeah, lots to improve in my opinion.

    Staff try hard to maintain & clean a place that needs a complete revamp. There was smoking in a room near mine stinking the place out. Kitchen needs new dish towels & a proper draining board, it’s a dive & not fun cooking when 3 others are cooking too. Oven smokes the place out. I won’t go back.

    Staff on reception were friendly & helpful. Whole hostel smelt of rotten fish, though luckily bedroom smelt fairly normal. Beds were comfy & rooms were massive, so lots of space. Kitchen smelt absolutely horrible. Living room was small but nice. Showers & toilets were very dirty and also stank. In general the hostel wasn’t too bad, just that the whole building smelt so bad & the bathroom was so dirty.
