A bit of a novelty staying at the Jailhouse, the 1st time we'd experienced chokey!
A squeaky clean hostel, nice staff, the cells are clean, beds comfy etc.
Only slight gripes are:
a) Quite far from City Centre
b) Nothing to do near hostel that interested us
c) Noise amplified because of all the metal/concrete & high ceilings.
That said, we really enjoyed our night here, & the staff booked us a taxi the next day.
