stephen Woodward

10 August 2009 stephen would recommend this property

Liked: It was clean and was nice to have breakfast included this made it very cheap. Staff were friendly and helpful.The large 18 bed room I was in was a bit to cramped, also there was not enough room on the floor for bags and not everyone used the lockers which were £1 per day and worth using (As plenty big enough). I was like a sauna at night and could do with air con in a room that packed (There wasn't enough room to site up in bed). I'd probably pay an extra few pound next time as a little more space would be worth while assuming the other rooms had more space. could do with showing a layout of the rooms. This probably wouldn't be my first choice probably why they still had room when I booked late.

Simon Roworth

03 August 2009

Liked: This hostel is the pits. I booked a month in advance and requested a bottom bunk as I have a disability and am unable to climb the ladder to the top bunk. I received an email saying this had been arranged yet wheN I checked in I found this not to be the case and a young Swedish girl had to be moved for me to get a bottom bunk. When the girl arrived back at the hostel at 0145 the following morning she woke me up and argued with me for 15 mins that U was in her bunk. The following day when I arrived back at the hostel I found I had been moved yet again to another bunk which was not a bottom bunk. I made my situation clear at reception who tried to help but ended up checking out and going home. There is no Manager on site at the hostel, apparently he is based in London. Refunds cannot be given at the hostel, you have to write to Head Office in London for that to be arranged. All in all, an exceptionally bad experience. Will never return there or recommend the hostel to anyone.

Customer review

Liked: The hostel was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. The individual curtains around the bunks meant you could get a good sleep and it felt much more private. Staff were friendly and helpful and the whole experience was great.
