Traditional hostel style. V helpful staff deputy manager Norbert. Great location overlooking beach. Easy 10min walk along prom to town. Clean rooms, kitchen. Good atmosphere amongst all residents. The only negative is due to large groups regularly visiting kitchen area to prepare food is limited. All in all though would highly recommend and v pleased with Margate. Locals v friendly.... More

We stayed in the hostel twice in July 2012 and 2013. Each time with groups of ca. 40 children. The location is excellent. The rooms are rather small but clean. The management is friendly and very helpful. I recommend this place special to self-catering groups. The hostel has a well equiped kitchen. It is a very good value for money.

This hostel is run by very helpful and friendly staff and management - they go the extra mile to make your holiday run smoothly....unlike so many places ! It was 20mins straight walk from the station, and a Tesco express is close by. The beach opposite is large and sandy, lifeguards on duty. It is very good value for money... More

We have been sending our groups to Margate for almost 10 years. It offers good value for money. It is not a hotel in the first place, so do not expect hotel facilities. The hotel is clean, the staff is friendly. What else is worth mentioning is the location. The hostel is situated just a stone's throw from the beach... More

The hostel was ok and adequately stocked - we booked this out for a large group and so it easily accommodated us all - the kitchen could have been a bit bigger but there were several cookers and fridges. The bedrooms are small but tidy. For just a weekend on the cheap this is good value for money - if... More

Our class stayed there for 5 days. We had the whole house for us. The 30 boys had only 2 showers on the floor and one of them didn´t work. Furthermore the water was very hot, while the girls had only cold water. Even if the girls´ rooms had a shower it was bad. The bathroom was small and the... More

We stayed in this hell for five days with our class. The boys had 2 bathrooms for 30 guys and the rooms were so small, that it was a imposition. The rooms were clean, but it wasn't allowed to eat anything there, or we would get a punishment of 100 pounds. The beds were over 200 years old (I thought... More

The short of it is this place should to be shut down. Worst place I have ever stayed, left at 5am just to get out of there. Even the low price should NEVER tempte you to stay here. At the least it should be gutted and totally refitted. It is in an appalling state of repair. Nothing works and everything... More
