Even though there wasn't anything seriously negative which happened to me, my private room which felt like a prison. - no windows, there was a ceiling light and a small skylight, which I'm not sure if it was artificial/natural light. -stains on the mattress, -power plug which was detached from the wall that didn't work and there wasn't any atmosphere to the place. The front windows and doors were completely covered in black paper which looked unprofessional and didn't give the best impression.

When I arrived I was greeted by a lovely gentleman who showed me around and gave me the internet password. - And that’s the end of the positive impression I got. A guy was stabbed here before Christmas, my roommate saw a rat in the kitchen, it isn’t social, another drunken roommate came screaming he was covid positive whilst meaning he was covid negative then he threw up on himself. I called the management who had the “not my problem”-attitude. Super rude, so I checked out 11pm Ugh. I got refund

The hostel is in a good location. The room was very basic. Just bunk beds and a stool. No lockers or anything, just some plastic tubs under the beds for storage, nothing secure. Seemed clean enough. Bathrooms appeared clean and the general kitchen area had the required equipment - microwave, kettle, toaster etc and was reasonably clean - though I did bring my own cutlery etc for Covid safety reasons. It did the job for the night but I don't think I would stay again.
