Liked: Very small room with old matrasses on the bunk beds. But for one night it was fine. Lots of bathrooms, but not so clean and very basic. In Causeway Cafe great breakfast for reasonable value.

Liked: Typical Hostel. Close to the city center, easy to get to - If you just want a bed to stay in, book it. Lucky because three of us got a 4 bed room and no extra 4th person came, so we had the room to ourselves.

Disliked: While convenient located, didn't seem like a great area. There was a sign on the place next door that said something about drug dealers being put out of the area if caught. There was a HUGE party going on and because our window was not sealed properly, we all had to wear headphones to sleep and could still hear the music well into 2-3AM that night.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Toilets were shocking. No padlocks on the lockers and when asked for one the answer was no. Bike shed was small with only 3 spaces for bikes also did not seem secure. Lift was dreadful, dirty and looked unsafe. Windows blocked out no sounds from outside. Sink in the room had no plug. Beds were uncomfortable. Bunks looked like would collapse.
