02 October 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The staff were friendly, the location was excellent and it was easy to find, the beds were comfy.

Disliked: It was very noisy. We had a four bedroom dorm next to the bathroom and the walls were thin and every now and again there was a high pitched screeching. A couple of us didn't sleep at all. Also, the hostel is full of early risers and their showering/walking up and down the corridor was rather irritating. Other than that, the hostel had everything that was needed - just take ear plugs.

Liked: A very average property with quite small rooms but located right of the high street.

Disliked: Rooms were quite small - we were glad the we were only 2 people in the room because there were nowhere to put our luggage. The batroom were a good size but water leaked onto the floor of the hallway.

Liked: It's proximity to the station and local shops

Disliked: The lower bunks were very low, and you can't sit up on them. The room we had was also very small for 4 people to share. The walls were very thin so it was also quite noisy. There were no lockers, although we were reassured that our belongings were safe in the rooms.

15 July 2011

Liked: Proximity to centre of town and free parking available

Disliked: The matresses were very old, uncomfortable and needed renewing. The room had a stale smell to it so when we went out during the day, we left the window open slightly to air the room, but when we came back in the evening, it had been closed and the room absolutely stunk!
