Liked: It was quite quirky, the decor was very good with Jack Daniels plastered on the wall, the most important part to it was definitely the hostel leisure room with the pool table - where you could just go in and chat to people or if you fancied just nip next door to the pub and grab yourself a pint and chat to some friendly locals :) The breakfast was better than me and my friend had expected, for the price it worked out very nicely.

Disliked: I can't really grumble because the cost was so low, it's just the room was a bit sweaty and I wouldn't say unclean per se but not really somewhere you'd want to sleep every night. But the mattress was comfy and the bunk bed layout is a bit different/a novelty if you're not used to it and only there for a short stay - I suppose it's in doors and warm so it beats camping for comfort anyway.
