Perfectly good hostel in a great location. Ideal if you're stopping off for a night on the way up to Scotland as we did. Very close to the town centre. Only issue we had was that the hostel advertises parking on site and when I checked-in online I was asked to submit my reg plate. On arrival it is just a driveway and they allocate it to the person or party that is staying the longest. I had to park on the street. You need to pay for a permit unless it is after 6pm on a Saturday or a Sunday.

We are a group of 16 cyclists on our way back from Edinburgh to North Wales. The hostel was clean and tidy and the facilities on offer were ideal for us. Secure bike storage, bike repair station and a drying room were excellent. There is also a handy outside area to eat outside. We would definitely stay here again.
