Good kitchen and large seating and eating areas. Outside TV room and BBQ is good for after-10pm revellers. Renovated rooms are excellent. Free tea and coffee. Kitchen is chained off until 0730hrs each day. Good laundry.

Stayed here for 2 nights mid April. Hostel was good. Staff are not too friendly and seem unhappy. Rooms are good although I had the 'squekiest bed in the hostel' so any movement by myself caused a great noise. A lot of locals come down and most are nice but I have been contacted by the police as there was... More
