I'll keep this shirt and to the point: 1. Great location 2. Nice and relaxing atmosphere 3. Great facilities 4. Friendly staff 5. Decent value for money My only issue is that the Windows didn't open wide enough in the rooms, which made the rooms stuffy.

The good: Great people at reception. Female dorms available. Free wifi. Comfortable bed. Clean showers. Good location. Individual lights. The bad: Room was too hot! Slamming doors. Small kitchen. Have to pay for lockers. The stay would have been much better if the windows could open more than a few inches and if there were some type of air flow.... More

Am a regular visitor here - always exceptionally clean and helpful, friendly people on the front desk. Never noisy and plenty of good facilities. Handy to everything in the city - including the supermarket right across the road. The staff there even go over and above - I was recently "saved" when I needed to get a document printed, signed...

Firstly a comment about some of the other people that stay at YHAs. YHAs are very welcoming to all races and ages. However, I do occasionally find that some of the younger people who stay look at us 'older' travellers as if we shouldn't be there. In fact in one YHA a girl even asked me 'why are you staying...

Stayed for one night over new years. This place was surprisingly clean, wifi worked pretty good, staff was friendly. Great location, very central. Yet it does feel like a mass accomodation given the size of this place. Room was small, slept well, compfy beds. View was not nice.

Dear Betty V Thank you for your feedback. I will pass on your compliments to our hardworking housekeeping staff. It's great to hear you slept well, that's the most important thing. I’m sorry to hear that the view from your room was not as nice as you’d have hoped. In future please don’t hesitate to inquire at reception about moving... More

The Rooms in this hostel are clean. A lot of the rooms have an own bathroom, bunks but cobbords for everybody in the room. Good facilities in the hostel, friendly and competent staff at the reception.
