Cosy, lovely hostel
A little cold, but electric heaters were great to warm up by! (I imagine this would not be a problem when it is warmer outside) Would stay here again. Excellent location!!

Very good accommodation
Double room was good and comfortable. Downside was that it was next to the communal toilets and people were not so quiet. Place is fairly central. Staff were very friendly and approachable.

All the workers made our stay great. They were very accomodating and couldn't have been more welcoming
john, gb1 night trip with friends
Very good 8.0
Happy to stay again
Cheap, central, parking nearby, right opposite tesco, friendly staff, easy check in/out, clean beds and showers. The place is a little shabby and there are awkward corners (like behind the beds) that are dirty but on the whole it's well equipped and perfectly acceptable for a hostel. Breakfast was very good.

We had car trouble coming in, and they were very accommodating, staying late to let us check in. Probably the best showers we had on our trip. Clean and Lots of hot water. The hostel is in a great location, easy walking distance to everything, but still quiet. Would definitely stay here again.
