Liked: Location was pretty good. The shower I used was warm, and the room was both clean and as big as I'd have expected for four people. Booked in for three people and were given a four person room for the lot of us.

Disliked: No secure storage from what I could see. We were in a room of our own, so not really an issue. Somewhat loud at night with people coming in during the early hours, but hey, it's a youth hostel, what else do you expect?

Liked: Stayed here with a group of 4 girls after a night out as it was cheaper than getting a taxi home. Best decision ever. It was in the best location ever, the staff were really friendly, really good value for money, an all round winner!

Disliked: The shared toilet wasn't the best experience but what do you expect!

Liked: Amazing location and the staff were so friendly and kind. The room was clean and really nicely done, booked 2 beds in a room of 8 and given a room of 6 for just us two which was amazing especially impressed with each rooms on suite private bathroom with shower. 24 hour access really can't complain!

Disliked: Only disadvantage was there were no lockers for personal items however since we did not have to share our room this was not a problem for us!

Liked: Fantastic location if you are in the seafront building. Just cross the road and you are on the beach!

Disliked: The shower was very difficult. It was in an enclosed cubicle with no light so it is dark when you have a shower. Also you can only switch the shower on and off from outside the cubicle so it is difficult not to get water everywhere!

Liked: I loved the location because it was right in the middle of the night life and near lots of good places to eat, especially the 24 hour cafe which proved useful after a night out. The room was quite basic but everything was very clean and the beautiful seafront view was greatly appreciated.

Disliked: It was very noisy at night but that was expected because of the great location and we already knew this would happen so it wasn't that big of an issue.
