We've stayed in many YHA's and hadgreat time - but boy is this one letting the side down. Apart from the lovely chap on reception and excellent drying room...
the kitchen & staff were appauling. Seriously dirty cutlery, covered in food and no care at all when this was pointed out - the response, there some that are clean (which, on further inspection became clear was not the case... but was met with no care/concern at all.
and the bedroom I was in i had the dulcit tones of men using the urinals through the wall. nice.
seriously YHA, this is letting the side down. if its going to be done up, close it now rather than ruin your brand on this in the interim, or at the very least, sort out the kitchen staff.
