This is a typical YHA: it has well equipped, spacious kitchens, good food storage, a large communal area, laundry (expensive) etc. The beds were really comfy and the duvets lovely. It does, however feel tired and in need of some renovation, and the building was freezing.
There are not enough showers and toilets for the number of rooms and those that there are are located by the main stairwell which is a fair distance from rooms located at the other end of the wing / coridoor.
We had an issue whilst there which was that we had a leak through the ceiling into our room. It was from the toilet above and looked like wee. This wouldn't have mattered had it not been for the fact that someone had been into our room and obviously noticed it be ause they'd placed our bin under it to catch the drops. However, they'd not informed anyone of this, so by the time we'd discovered it, it was night time and we'd just put the kids to bed. We then had to drag them out of bed to move rooms, and we ended up in less good rooms with much hassle. This was because the hostel were placing people who had asked for a dorm in dorms alone rather than filling up the dorms one by one. This when at night we needed a 4 bed dorm and a double it was a problem. The girl who sorted everything out for us was lovely and really helpful.
