The addition of beautiful oak flooring and bold fabrics now make the interior almost as impressive as the exterior.

not able to check in on 11/08; On the 12/08/23 when I arrived at 8.40 “to check in” the male staff member stared at me, I repeated myself and his reply was “ check in is at 15.00” so I explained I was due the day prior. room No 4 He said rather sharply “ they’ll still be asleep so be quiet” my bunk was the top one( not a problem) BUT Only 3 lockers available for 6 bunks- I needed a locker locker and very large bags were open x 2 on the very limited floor space - fire/Not safe-Not as advertised

We booked a private room with ensuire for 4, 2 adults 2 teens. The room had 3 x bunk beds to sleep 6 with a toilet and shower. We needed a bed to stay 1 night. Great location. Relaxed atmosphere, The whole place needs a good deep clean though like the corridors, doors and so on. The rooms were cleanish, the bedding was clean, the ensuite bathroom was clean. We didn't use the bar or restaurant so cannot comment on that. It was full and not too noisy after 10.30pm. Would consider YHA again.
