Latest Review

" Stayed in an 8 bed dorm and I think it was the best room! Had ensuite (separate shower room and bathroom) was so spacious and clean. Loved it! Extended twice. The location is excellent right next to central station, and the carriages as rooms were interesting. The only issue is that for a girl travelling on her own there wasn’t many other people travelling to make friends with, lots of older people and school trips and families. But I loved it here, would recommend to anyone. "
