For our first stay in a hostel ever we were pretty impressed. The location was fantastic, and our room (an 8 bed dorm) had views of the Castle. The layout of the hostel was cool, with the rooms being a decent size and the bathrooms as well. The price for our stay was 12 pounds per person per night which we were pretty happy about! Each bed also has a large locker with plenty of space to stash your valuables; I could probably have put my whole bag in there if I wanted.
On the downside the major problem we had was the windows. As they are old they dont close properly so our room was freezing at night. The other problem was the lack of powerpoints. There was one set of power points on the other side of the room with an adapter to allow a few more, but Im sorry if this seems paranoid but no way would I plug my camera or phone in overnight on the other side of the room with complete strangers!
Other than that the stay was great :) the staff weren't the friendliest on reception, but no problems with our actual accommodation. Oh, and the beds were super comfy!
