    Our stay at YHA was brilliant! The staff were so accommodating and friendly. As our booking was last minute we were going to be split up into different rooms with other guests, however they managed to prepare two separate rooms for us so we had our own private rooms! The hostel was exceptional clean and had all the facilities you would need (towels, shower gel, lockers). The staff were the most impressive part, the lady at the front desk was so lovely, she made us very welcome.

    Really clean, nice hostel, very friendly staff and wonderful kitchen facilities. It’s only down side is that it’s a fair walk from the town centre.

    Cute, fun, friendly. Only spent one night so I can’t say much but it was nice. Pros: Cute victorian house, lots of windows, central location, very clean. Snacks available at front desk as well as food to order. Cons: was impossible not to get water all over floor in combined toilet/shower room.

    Overall really good stay. is not on the city centre but is easily walkable, there are some shops (an a pizza hut) on the way. Also a bus stop to Folkestone is across the road. We staid in the 6 bed private room. One of the bunk beds was in its own little alcove, and both the toilet and shower had their own individual little room (useful)in the morning rush) The staff was lovely and helpful and overall the place was clean and tidy.
