Ive never stayed in a hostel before in my life. Went with my university for a cheap weekend away.
Having read some of the reviews on here I was a bit worried! But it actually wasn't too terrible!
I think I was prepared for the worst!
( However, make sure you take your own pillow and a towel. We went on a coach so were able to do this)
To sum it up... its the most basic hotel I've ever stayed in!
But it was clean and did the job!
The shower was hot and the bunk beds were okay. WARNING: there are no steps to get to the top bunk!
The seating communal area was probably the nicest part of the hostel.
The large yellow sign is also so helpful on a night out!
The location was very good.
Its ideal for a very cheap stay. I don't think I could have lasted more than two nights though!
