Stay away from this place. It is in desperate need of a huge financing input to bring it up to a reasonable standard. Thread bear carpets, cob webs in the restaurant and bar, wallpaper pealing off the walls. Cleanliness needs desperate attention. Food! Will never eat there again. Must say night staff very friendly. I don't understand the good reports,... More

DO NOT STAY HERE.... Well, here we go. Nobody on reception desk when checking in. On line booking advertised on site parking, it wasn't. So far so bad. The immediate impression I had reminded me of Banksys Dismaland project. The on line picture looked nothing like the grim reality. Crappy seventies decor and furnishings and disinterested surly staff. This place... More

I was filled with terror after reading some of these reviews and being booked in to go here for work, but although it was dated and some of the fittings were broken, staff were friendly, it was clean and the bed was comfy. The location was also very good.

Clean but dated. Excellent pillows! The bed was pretty comfy too. Free WIFI a plus! We had a large group(many were kids) we were called down a lot for being too loud, when we didn't think we were being all that loud. Apparently the staff also lives at the hotel and there are some that sleep during the day so... More

I am French and when I am paying 55£ for a double room, I think it is expensive. Even further when the hostel is located in a uninteresting place in the middle of nowhere... The room was clean,nothing to tell about it. However, it was really hot all night long (because of the heater's hose which was really warm I... More
