Liked: Very central. Clean and comfortable. Quiet dorm room with not a lot of noise filtering through from neighbouring bar.

Disliked: The bed in my 4 bedded dorm (room 213) was very creeky and made noise upon every little movement. The mattresses were also quite thin, and you could at times feel the base of the bed.

Liked: The location! The bathroom was clean

Disliked: I stayed on a Sunday night after 3 busy nights and was hoping to get some quiet time. The bar was below my room (I was on first floor) and it was so loud it felt like I was next door, it was like a night club and it went on all night. Make sure you are not located on the first floor.

09 December 2013 emily kate would recommend this property

Liked: The location, the fact that there were baths rooms around the building so that if someone was using the en suit you did not have to walk out the building to somewhere else. Good kitchen equipment and always cleaned twice a day. Towel and soap in bathrooms. Staff were great. A washing machine that actually gets stuff clean and a dryer that dries the clothes in under 35 mins (a first for me)

Disliked: The kitchen is tiny, have to wait to get in if groups of friends are stood round one hob, smoking when front doors are open the smoke blows back inside the building, the back patio when people are smoking and kitchen door or window open smell of smoke, beds are very very very squeaky, can't turn over with out a lot of noise. Very very noisy till midnight every night, Lockers not in every room, free meal, is misleading, as part of the advertisement on hostel books says meal included, I was vegetarian and every meal contained meat so I could not get a "free meal"

Liked: Game at the bar make it easy to meet people and the rooms are generally really clean. Awesome location.

Disliked: 'Upgrade' from 10 person to 6 person dorm was terrible. Room was way too small. Alcohol ban is stupid. It's just so they can make more money at the bar and not because drunk people disturb people. That being said, I'm not sure if there are other backpackers that aren't dry.

Liked: nice place great location. staff is friendly

Disliked: i was on the third floor and i disliked the skylight in my room. would ask for second floor room next time. The kitchen seems a bit small for how many people they could hold but i never had any problems. Tv room and kitchen are together so very noisy and hard to watch tv.
