This is probably the most immaculate hostel I've ever stayed at. It was only built a few years ago, and is in perfect condition - it's more like a modern share house than a hostel. Large commercial grade kitchen, small clean dorm rooms with open cupboards to store your stuff, flat screen TV in the large communal eating/relaxing area, a separate TV/music room, spotless bathrooms, parking out the back, next door to a bar and cafe, etc. It really is quite amazing for a hostel.
On the down side the manager seemed a bit tired and grumpy, although in fairness I think she was recovering from the flu. With all of the signs everywhere (take your shoes off, open the door slowly etc) it felt a bit like being back at school. This wasn't helped by there only being half a dozen people staying in the hostel that night (in peak season!) so there was zero atmosphere.
If you're looking for somewhere that is modern, spotless and with great facilities, though, you can't go past the Swansea Backpackers.
