Liked: Southend hostel is a nice and quiet hostel not far from the city centre and there is a nice blues bar 15 metres from the hostel entrance. The rooms are tidy and the beds were ok and you have lockers to store your bags in. This is a nice place for the people who rather enjoy quiet and calm athmosphere at their sleeping places.

Disliked: Wifi only works at the social room.
