-Good location, just 15 mins walk across The Meadows to the Old Town. Nice part of town, Shops, restaurants, pubs, hip cafes nearby. You can park right outside for free during the weekend/after 5:30pm, you can park for free during the weekdays about 15 mins walk away.
-Excellent free WiFi
-Facilities are good
-You couldn't do your own laundry - you had to pay the hostel for the service (which can cost a bit and can lead to shrunken clothes etc if you're not very specific with the instructions!)
-Our room was a double on the top floor with a skylight. Unfortunately you couldn't open this, nor was there any other window so despite the weather not being particularly warm (I don't think it got to 20 degrees C our whole stay) the room could get very hot and stuffy
The atmosphere was great for a couple. Due to its location and atmosphere, those looking for more of a party stay may be disappointed.
