Very good 8.0
I stayed two nights there. It's a very basic hostel above a pub with breakfast included in the price (toasts, cereal, coffee/tea type breakfast). The staff was very friendly, I had good chat there. In this place the best thing was the friendly staff. And the bathroom facilities were good. A nice place if you just need a place to sleep.

Cheap but dirty
The staff was friendly and the room very cheap. However, it was unfortunately very filthy. When I arrived the sheets hadn't yet been changed. They apologised for this and the sheets were immediately changed. Much of the place needed renovation and in-depth cleaning. The room, the halls and the bathroom were dirty and most of the toilets out of order. The bed was ok and it was not too noisy in the night. The location is pretty central.
