Lovely building and a very comfortable place to stay. Shared dormitory bathroom felt a tad small (not sure if there were communal bathrooms somewhere else on the floor). Good spread of food for breakfast.

The rooms were ok, the breakfast was ok, the bathrooms (especially the showers) were dirty. I like that each bed had a light, but there were no outlets reachable by the top bunk. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The price is fair and location is perfect. Car can be parked in front of hostel or nearby. But the bath room and upper bed set back our satisfaction. Floor accumulation at the bath room and upper bed closely located under the beam.

Safestay is inside an old Georgian town house so has bags of character. Clean, quiet and friendly, it's only a 10 min walk from the main old town, but surrounded by small bars and cafes too. Highly recommended.

I choose this place for the location and it suited perfectly. It was walking distance to the train station and center city. The rooms were quite comfortable and we had ensuite bathroom that small but sufficient. There was a nearby bar playing music late on the Sunday night that was the only drawback.

I was there in April 2016 and all I can say is that the quality of this hostel is over my expectation with nice decoration. The room was very clean and comfortable with bathroom inside, compared to the other one I had stayed in London. The receptionist is helpful and very friendly. Wifi is free there. It locates near the... More

I slept well for 4 nights in the 4 bedroom place with small bathroom. I was lucky since the room was not fully booked. On Sunday night, you could hear the noise of the nearby cafe. It was a nice and very good value stay.

Appart from noisy roommates very early in the morning, everything was very nice! The rooms are comfortable and clean and the communal areas are airy, comfortable and well cared for. It was no hardship to spend the evening sitting in the comfy sofas of the lounge, and we've met super nice people during our stay there!

I have stayed here last night and I gotta say it's more like a hotel than Hostel. Really comfy beds.. good food.. great location and super friendly staff.. Greg gave me a free coffee this morning and big K, the MMA fighter for white collar boxing last night was awesome. God bless guys.. Highly recommended you stay here.
