The hostel is very nice,beds are some of the more comfortable I have been in a hostel. I had a 6 room dorm to myself for a couple of nights as this not the most traveled part of England. The staff keep the place clean daily,but, I do have a few minor complaints.
The tea towels in the kitchen could have stood a washing and they had been changed since who knows when.
The fact that the staff has to do your laundry is a huge drawback. I really don't need nor want someone else doing my kit.
The location,while good, is a bit of trek from the train station and if not familiar with the area you can get lost.
The other fact is unlike other hostels I have stayed in you have to knock on the door to get in which is a pain.
Other than that...I would recommend the place if you are in the area.
