Liked: The hostel was all it was quoted; thedrawback from our point of view was the streetside rooms were very noisy _ perhaps double glazing would be the answer. Otherwise, a great place to stay!

Irene Wilson

21 June 2010 Irene would recommend this property

Liked: Was most impressed with the cleanliness and location of the hostel. Cooking facilities were great and much appreciated. The staff service was good, especially when I needed assistance to get a school pupil back into her room (no english) as she had locked herself out and was in great distress at @ 4am one morning. Have already recommended this hostel to people and will continue to do so. Great experience and very comfortable.

09 May 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Things were very clean, staff friendly and helpful. It might take a bit longer than 10 minutes to walk there from the train station (as described by the hostel on the website), but still it was very well located and most of the attractions were within walking distance. Playhouse's super near.

Liked: It was clean and safe, but nothing more. It was very sterile and no effort made to make it cosy. Still, if all you want is a place to sleep and you don't want to spend a lot of time there, this is a decent place.
