“Bring earplugs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

Hostel accommodation above a pub.
Showers very clean and with oodles of hot water, you even get a towel with your room.
Slightly pokey kitchen/TV room and room 3 could do with a lick of paint - all standard hostel stuff.
Insanely noisy on a Friday night but hey, why are you in your room when the band is downstairs?
Good value for money so long as you have earplugs.

Good comments! We quite agree it can be noisy upstairs on a live gig night so it's a good idea to check our website gig guide before you book to check if there is a band playing when you want to stay. If it's your preference to have a quieter night, plesae let us know and we can try to accommodate you in one of the rooms situated over the restaurant instead of over the Main Bar. Either that, or, as you say - come downstairs and party!
