    Me and my brother stayed here for a night after going to a gig. The location was a minute walk from the venue, and right in the centre of the city. The guy on reception was lovely and helpful. We stayed in a dorm room with lots of other people but you wouldn’t think it as it was so quiet and respectful of people sleeping. The whole hostel was really spacious and had a good atmosphere. We would definitely recommend staying here, and I’ll be going again.

    Staff were very helpful and nice. Not very cleanly though, especially in the bathrooms. And their system for people picking their own beds isn’t super useful.

    All great, except no showers and two toilet cubicles for that many people, unless I just didn't find the magic bathroom

    Toilets and showers were like porter loos, however there were many of them which was good as you didn’t have to wait. Very comfortable beds which didn’t make noise while climbing the bunk bed. Key card system was good. Free breakfast was simple but good: toast, cereal, coffee, tea and juice. Friendly staff. Overall a good stay.

    You get what you pay for... Atmosphere is a bit hostile and not the most welcoming, hostel is understaffed and common areas and dorm stink of urine. Information about check-in was unclear and I would be arriving so I spent HOURS trying to call the front desk to check that I would be able to check in, however I was constantly kept on the line and no-one answered. This really pissed me off. Location is central, price is good. You get what you pay for.

    Don't underestimate how loud this hostel is. There is a bowling alley below the rooms along with a very, very loud club. I booked into a 20 bed mixed dormitory and asked to be moved to a four bed female dorm at around 1am. I honestly didn't feel safe in the mixed dormitory. Of course its a hostel and you don't expect much privacy or quiet, but there were big groups of loud, drunk men who made me feel very uncomfortable. There are only female toilets on one floor which is very inconvenient.

    Paid £38 for one night which I though was very steep and the bedroom window had been smashed and had newspaper covering the holes. Unhygienic and was about 2 girls staying there. Honestly a massive rip off and kinda creepy atmosphere...
