Important Information

Hostelbookers Sale
Please note that all sales bookings are final and non-refundable. The property may charge your card in advance for the full amount of your stay. Payment protection is also not available in connection with these bookings. In the event that you cancel your booking the accommodation provider shall be entitled to retain the total outstanding costs of your booking. All rooms that are included in the sale are identified in their room type as [“!!! Sale !!! Non Refundable”].


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.

Liked: Location, no problems at all.

Disliked: NO small light in the rooms- meaning that when coming back late at night/ early in the morning it is very inconvenient for every one in the room as the big light has to be turned on. The heating is a bit to strong in the whole building.

Liked: curtains for each bunk, good price for location, 2 clean sheets per person

Disliked: it was shocking to pay a 10 pound deposit up front, equivalent to a 100% charge on our 1 night stay..we ofcourse did get it back though, but it was a little unexpected
