I have stayed in better hostels; however for the one night I was there it was fine. But definitely a no thrills hostel. It was clean, and the rooms were fairly spacious. It was reasonably cheap so in that respect it is great value. There was free breakfast, the usual basics: toast and cereal.
The kitchen space is limited, and lots of washing up was pilling up on the sides so I opted to eat out.
I stayed in a dorm of 10, and had the top bunk; there were no ladders to get up top. So when I went to bed I found myself struggling to get up in the dark (not wanting to turn on the light as quite a few people were sleeping). There is no space to lock your bags away, which isn’t too much of an issue as I have a lock on mine. It did mean that people had left their bags open across the floor. The location is fairly good, only a 10 minute walk into the heart. I think for one or two nights this hostel is good value, but I would not have wanted to spend long there.
