Visited with trepidation as never stayed at a hostel before. The owner was very friendly and helpful showing us round and giving us any help needed. The room we were in was dated and very cramped for 3 people but above all else very clean. We were only there to sleep in it and was less than £20 each-what more... More

Having not stayed in many hostels before I was a bit worried initially if only because the other hostels we stayed in had been affiliated with the YHA rather than being an independent outfit. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience, however, as the staff was exceedingly friendly, the location was convenient, and the rooms/facilities were sufficient. We stayed... More

The beds were very uncomfortable and flimsy, whenever I turned, the one below awoke and if somebody in the room moved, the bed's noise woke me up. And I am usually not waking up easily... Bathroom facilities in the basement and... More

The kitchen area was also clean and there was coffee, tea, milk... More
