    It is very nice from this owner to offer dormitories. It is super helpful. And no more single room left that night. The building is stunning and so are the common area. However we were 10 people so it means the hotel was making 120 pounds for the room. Why not more attention to details? Why not a nice light instead of an industrial one especially at night? Why not investing 10 pounds in a little light at night? Beside that it was clean with a nice breakfast for a very good price.

    I usually stay here for 1-2 nights every 5 weeks when I visit my son's and baby granddaughter. It absolutely suits me fine and I have never had any issues. If I had any complaint it would be that all the dorms are mixed and I would definitely prefer to be in a female only dorm, but like I said no problems to date.

    Kinda strange place given it seems like a bunch of local junkies seem to live here, giving it an overall weird vibe. We had the 9 bed dorm to ourselves which was good because there aren't security lockers. Although we were the only ones in the room and had a key, after going out for dinner and coming back the door was open and some things in the room had been moved around but nothing was stolen. Breakfast is also included - toast, cereal, tea and coffee.

    I guess value for the money is ok, but it really doesn't have that hostel felling. I missed the cover for the duvet, it fell dirty. The staff though was really nice.

    I mean we walked into the dorm,. and the window was jarred open and broken,. the lockers were flimsy and didn’t even have a lock on them, and the door of one do them fell off. Beds also looked they were taken straight out of a prison.

The smell in the room was disgusting. the room was in bad conditions. the kitchen is so small and smelly. the common areas smell really bad. never wanna be there again.

    Bad vibes at this place. It's a halfway house with 'hostel' bookings as a second income. A lot of long term residents particularly older guys. I only booked this (and in a rush!) as I needed a carpark and they offered £10 parking. As a solo traveller I did not feel comfortable staying so I checked in to Baggies hostel instead.
