Victoria Charvill

22 April 2008 Victoria would recommend this property

Liked: There was a mistake with the booking, we'd booked a 2 bed private en suite, but were booked as a 3 bedded without en suite. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and gave us a 4 bedded en suite to ourselves. Definately a hostel with lots of character and the pod bunks were great. Plenty of lockers in the rooms to store personal belongings. Hostel was perfect for what we wanted it for.
