Important Information

We require guests under 12 to be booked into private accommodation. If booking a dormitory for a family, please email us before booking to guarantee private placement is available. BOOKINGS OF 10 OR MORE PEOPLE are considered Group Bookings and must be booked with The Group Bookings Department to verify availability for the dates, as well as special Group Rates that may be more or less than those stated for individuals. As Group Bookings require more effort regarding placement, security, processing, etc., we must reserve the right to deny any bookings made for more than 10 people. Please also be aware that your deposit is non-refundable per HostelBookers.com TOS and therefore booking more than 10 people puts your 10% deposit at risk as you will not be refunded.

Alberto Nantiat

02 September 2009 Alberto would recommend this property

Liked: I liked the rooms in common as the "dining room" and the kitchen and the room of the computers. I liked the location. I liked the atmosphere.I would have preferred a wider variety of foods for the breakfast.I don't remember having read that sheets, lockers, luggage room and internet are not included in the price and have to be paid apart (but maybe i is written and I don'tremember it). Same with the deposit. But I think they are sensible conditions, I just would have preferred to know about them before.

Liked: The location is excellent, but the atmosphere is not great, especially when you arrive and they nickel and dime you for every possible thing (towels, lockers, fee for using credit card, plus you have to provide a deposit of ten pounds -- cash -- per person).
