    I would recommend this place because the atmosphere was amazing people laughing and joking and generally having a good time only thing I would say is don't go on a Friday night as it's a bit loud at night also the location of the property is a bit of a problem especially if you don't know the area. The place it's self was lovely clean and friendly no matter what your race ethnicity or sexuality. I have also marked down for the price as it's a little expensive but great choice for brekky

    Overall it was adequate but that was it. The bed was comfortable but squeaked constantly through the night even from breathing and the dorm me and my friend stayed in had an individual in the room that may have been on something while in our room and woke up having night terrors at some point that put us a little on edge. I’ve stayed in a lot better hostels in the UK for the same price so was disappointed to pay £50 for 2 beds.
