Just your average hostel.Was very clean even with a few stag/hen dos in. Very noisy - you can hear conversations through the walls. Tea, coffee and toast all complimentary which is good as some hostels don't provide. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm and payed £24... which is a little more than most hostels I have stayed in. Saying that...

Stayed Here In May for a Stag doo. Finding the Hostel was the hardest part. We drove but took us quite a long time to actually find where to go. We phoned the Hostel but the directions they gave us were very vague. When you got to the Hostel you have to leave a safety Deposit for the stay which... More

Overall and since it's in the UK, it's a good hostel. The lack of lockers however it's a huge problem, I had no issues but was extra careful and knew this fact in advance, so basically left many valuables at home. The facilities however are very good. There's a common area, a terrace and a basement that makes meeting other... More

Stayed here last night on a stag doo. Place is full of stag and hen parties so felt welcome. Staff were nice and chatty. We were in a room of 6 people. Accommodation was clean. Free tea and toast were welcome this morning. There are no lockers but there is a safe behind reception. Security is good. You can't get... More

Apparently one of the best hostels in Britain yet not one of the four taxis I asked to drop me off knew where the place was. Day staff unhelpful and rude, spoke to is like we were children. Night staff nice although strict (it's a hostel not the Hilton). Very clean kitchen, they obviously Harv good cleaners x

Not sure how this place has managed to get good reviews about its staff, because they're terrible. Didn't appreciate the lecture on arrival, spoken to like I was a child. Then I ask a question and I'm told to shut up... Its really confusing why people like this work in customer service. That aside, room was nice and had a... More

I stayed two nights in May. The place wasn't busy at all, and they did say it gets busier at weekends! The rooms were big, no lockers but very clean, awesome lounge and kitchen space, great showers. All round pretty good, though the staff seemed miserable every encounter I had after my initial check-in.

Just returned during a stay for a friend's 30th birthday and was very impressed with the value. Staff were friendly, giving a no nonsense talk prior to our stay though understanding our that our time spent in the city was to be enjoyed. It suggested that even with large groups (we were 9 strong) staff were vigilant of any misbehaviour... More

First off the staff really made this hostel. The kitchen and common rooms were well equipped and kept clean. The hostel in general was clean but when it was busy on the weekend some areas were less desirable. The rooms did lack areas for keeping your things and you could feel all the springs in the bed. A good and... More
