Excessively expensive, pointless, and criminal
It was an excessively expensive and entirely pointless stay all together. Not to mention criminal. I was kept up all night by guests being heavily intoxicated and other guests being extreme nuisances disturbing my sleep throughout the night by doing things like pointlessly shaking the bed into the early hours of the morning, keeping lights on, loudly conversing and playing videos without earplugs, for examples. Nothing was done to stop this by the staff. I was then charged an additional 24.50 pound for an 11 pound night stay the next morning. A stay that I was also forbidden for using. Not that I would ever want to stay there again, anyway. I could not even use the amenities. I had very important work to do and I was unable to do this without a work space. All because of being a few minutes late after the 10am checkout time. I have never experienced such nonsense ever before at any accommodation provider. This is not a 4-star hotel. There is no hotel service. This is fraud. How can one charge so much for nothing, especially when there is not one single room in the hostel being sold for such an amount such as 24.50 pound as well. What makes it even more ridiculous is if anyone was to walk out at any time of the checkout day and simply not return the door card then that person would only be charged 5 pound, rather than any unspecified amount the staff feels like. Ridiculous policies. With the charge being automatic what's to stop people being charged if they are delayed checking out until after 10am by a long checkout line? Doesn't sound right. I want these policies written on every website that sells rooms for this hostel and we will see how much and for how long rooms will continue to be sold at this hostel when every one is aware of their secret and selective policies.

A disgrace. No soap in the toilet. No toiletries.

Appalling. Check-in took close to an hour. Two pounds to rent a towel plus a five pound deposit. Filthy behaviour encoraged by a lack of soap in the toilet. Highly unrecommended.

Just in the centre of Yirk

Good location, reasonable price
Only one problem is no hot shower. I was almost frozen to death because I had to take shower in early morning. The toilet, although cleaned daily, was a bit dirty.

Everything is Good

Location Breakfast Staff
滞在した時はちょうど館内の改装中でしたが、ベッドルームや廊下などの内装は綺麗でした。 スタッフもマルチリンガルで、ラテン系のスタッフは特に親切でした。 朝食はフルイングリッシュではなく、ビュッフェ形式でしたが思っていた以上に豪華でした。 エレベーターが使えなかったこと以外はたいへん満足しています。
