Liked: Kitchen

Disliked: Very noisy. Hostel is overcrowded. Very small room for many people. In the room window almost not open, nothing to breathe. Air no also in the showers, toilets and corridors. I was seriously afraid what suffocated. Even when outside 15 degrees in the room as in the bath. Horrible impolite roommates which did not sleep. It were not young people but women ages 50+. The door to the room cannot close silently. Very bad conditions.

Liked: Good location near the train station, good facilities (lounge, kitchen, wifi etc). There a bar that serves food as well, and you can pay £5.25 for a breakfast. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The bunks all had a shelf, bedside light and plug. No complaints!

Liked: It's a brand new hostel. Nice rooms, beds and showers. Really clean and downstairs a great place to meet new people. At the bar there are great chairs, there is a room where you can play some games and the kitchen is big enough for everyone. The staff is really helpfull and nice.

Disliked: It's a little bit far from the city centre. But there is no other option for this price closer to the centre. The walk is nice and safe to do. So it was not a big problem.
