cheap but cheerful with a great breakfast
For a budget room this was well laid out, shower facilities tired but the price was so good you can excuse them, you get what you pay for. If I had children and no money I would definitely use this to take my family on holiday. The breakfast was great, fresh cooked and lots of choice.

Clean and comfortable
The YHA is in a great location to access the city centre, easily in walking distance or on the bus from the bus stop just outside the hostel. The rooms are very warm and spacious and all areas are very clean. The kitchen is small but well equipped.

Reliabe YHA
The room for the price was more that adequate but a little tired around the edges but for those needing to stay on a tight budget would recommend. Especially the breakfast.
