    Cool building for a hostel in a cool area. Watch out though - those stairs will murder you.

    Perhaps one of the best YHA Sites in the UK well at least out of the ‘YHAs that I have been to. The only down side is if you don't have a car you need to walk the 199 stairs which might be interesting big you go out to town for a few too many drinks.

    Very interesting location- loved the views! Didn't love hauling my luggage up 3 flights of narrow stairs, but hey- worth it. Very quiet hostel, probably due to time of year. Short walk to town, really nice rooms and showers.

    Located right at the top of the hill near the old abbey makes for amazing views while still being a short walk from the centre of town. Wifi is restricted to the main shared areas and not to the rooms which can be annoying, and some of staff were less than helpful at times but other than that no complaints. Very comfortable rooms

    Good place to stay overnight but when it is hot, windows need to be opened and we can smell the fertilizer.
