12 to a room dormitory type accommodation. Clean and friendly and very close to Railway Station and City centre. If you are having 12 in a room then you can't have squeaky beds!! Door key cards stopped working in the middle of the night for me and a few others in the room. 2 x late night club revelers trying... More

Perfect location in the city centre, everything at walking distance. From experience I expected little comfort from the matrasses, but we had no complaints at all! The staff is very friendly and helpful, they printed our boarding passes for us when we had to leave for the airport. We'll be back!

We came as a couple on a wekend when there were a lot of people up for a night out, so the atmosphere so the atmosphere around the shotel was quite laddish. Pretty basic but no faults to be found really other than wifi being only available in the lounge area

Staff were every friendly. The hostel seemed quiet on arrival, maybe because it was a Wednesday in the beginning of June. The room and WC were tidy.

We booked 3 x 4 man rooms. The hostel is extremely clean particularly including the linen and bathrooms. Staff are friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, 5 mins from train station, range of bars/restaurants on the same street. Coffee and Toasts was included and there is a cafe next door if you needed more. Overall highly recommended.
