    Great place but important things need attention”

    The general presentation of this place is fantastic. Someone has done a really good job with all of the livery, lighting, comfort of the shared areas. But the rooms and especially the bathrooms/showers need urgent attention because they're dangerous, frankly. I was in a shower when the automatic energy-saver light went out leaving me in total darkness. Moving didnt turn it back on again so I was left feeling for the door which then wouldn't open! These things need urgent attention as they're foul of the law. Someone could get into serious difficulties with the problem I outlined.

    Nice hostel actually but..”

    It was unusual for me as foreigner had to leave my passport as a key room guarantee. But after argue, they only asked £10 for deposit of key room (a real key room, not key card just like another hostel I’ve visited/only £2-5 deposit).

    Disconfy bed, better sleep on a floor than on that mattress. Noisy people in the hostel. Bit chilly in the room even after heater on all night. The rest was fine

    Average hostel, we stayed at a very basic though expensive twin room with shared bathroom facilities. There were very few bathrooms and showers at the hostel and the staff never replied to us when we contacted them

    Pretty close to city centre about a 20 minute walk. ok if sunny but not if raining

    The room I had must have been the smallest room in the building(room 6) I could touch both sides of the wall,the frame of the bed was good nice and solid the mattress was a old spring type that creaked every-time you moved,showers on the first floor was not working so had to go up another floor,and no one said that there was breakfast available plus tea and coffee it was only by chance I found out.

    It was a good stay but with the value for money for checking out at 10am I do feel was a bit much and when we was told it was free breakfast all that was offered was toast.
