We'd had a good experience at a YHA before, and this one was no disappointment. Clean, spacious, secure (lockers and key cards), with extremely comfortable beds and plenty of hot water. Not to mention a comfortable lounge area perfect for a nice cold one in the evening from the bar.
Within walking distance of the city centre, but far enough away that it's very quiet at night.
Only critique - the showers didn't drain properly, so expect an ankle bath with the suds from Those Who Washed Before.
And tip! - if you are coming back after dark, get a £7 taxi rather than walk the riverside path in pitch darkness (the street lights don't go the whole way).
