We slept with three persons at the Backpackers Plus. One double room and one single room. The rooms were in an extra house with shared bathrooms, a shared living room and shared kitchen. In the kitchen you could prepare yourself an easy breakfast in the morning. The whole thing was very simple but fair.

The environment is warm and friendly. The room was clean and comfortable, I was with other friends in a 8-beds room. The living and dining rooms are shared, good to meet people. A kitchen corner is available. The building is an old church.

We were a group of 4 mature New Zealand travellers who stayed 2 nights here in the accommodation just up the road, and we found it fabulous. Clean, comfy, great breakfast, well priced, handy to everything. We simply loved it, and would recommend it to fellow travellers. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Light, bright rooms, with consideration notices in the dorm areas that are over served. Free wi fi, with great reception and speed. Free continental breakfast, relax and make it yourself, but as much as you want, which is nice in a budget place. Bathrooms were clean and the cubicles were were private and well thought out. Beds were comfortable, storage... More

Thank you for your review and we’re sad that you didn’t have a good time. We’re sorry that some other guests in your building were noisy. This is unusual but we can understand it would be upsetting wherever you were staying. The pub on the other side of the road is 100 metres away but even so we have taken... More

Dorm rooms are spacious, beds are comfy and each bed has its own power socket. The rooms are a little bit stuffy as there's only 2 windows which barely open. There could be more toilets but that's not the end of the world. The staff are very kind and for only £4, they will wash, dry and fold your clothes.... More

I stayed in June with a friend, we were up for a wedding and stayed 2 nights. We had dormitory room 7 to ourselves with a bunk and a double bed and it was perfect - enough powerpoints to charge all our gadgets, comfortable beds, everything we needed. The facilities are new and colourful - separate male/female bathrooms which is... More

Great facilities! Very friendly! Lovely decorated! There's lots of storage space in the rooms and bed lights. Good self catering kitchen. The lounge had everything you want for a short stop in a longer journey. And wifi is free!
