Awesome place to stay! Even though it's off the beaten track, I would go back here again. The shared common space and kitchen were an awesome vibe, very lively and welcoming. I had a fun issue from a previous hostel to resolve, and the staff were amazing at helping me sort it all out. Rooms were a bit cramped, and the bathrooms could have done with a touch-up clean later in the day, but overall a great experience!

Stayed in private twin room, bunk beds small . Room very small : shared bathroom Cleanliness okay , can smell everything from other bathrooms . Bed outdated with nails coming out of frame . Common room spacious but as expected very loud tenants / workers. Room keys need to be updated as you can hear every turn of the key . Spent roughly 100 pounds for one night . Nice location , beside dean village however 15-20 min drive walk to restaurants and shops.
