Very clean, well looked after property. Lovely big sofas in common area. My only complaint would be the plug socket situation- there isn’t enough and it would be so much more convinient to have one plug socket at each bed and maybe a reading light. I had to use my portable charger to plug phone in over night to set alarm. Other than that it does what it says on the tin. Good location and friendly staff.

Pros: location, free street parking, has a small gym, showers were awesome, comfy bed Cons: the 2 kitchens were disgusting, wifi was terrible and mostly only long term guests (hard to make friends as a solo traveler)

A nice relaxing hostel with a chilled out vibe. Quite a few social spaces so it’s good for solo travellers. Perfect location, close to everything. Rooms weren’t the cleanest and felt outdated- only two plugs between 8 people which is very inconvenient.
