Liked: It was a pretty standard hostel; there's a couple of common rooms for watching tv or just chatting. The staff is very friendly.

Disliked: It's a bit outside of city center, a bit of a walk or a pricey taxi ride. I believe there was one or two buses that made it out that way.

Liked: Bathrooms, kitchen and other common places were comfortable. Rooms cleaned and nice beds.

Disliked: It does not have much pubs, supermarkets or other places around. There was a misunderstanding with the beds: they could assign a bed for each person.

Liked: The hostel is a pleasant location, well run and with helpful staff. The facilities are good and it is excellent value for money. I would go there again. I especially liked the two lounges.

Disliked: If the hostel is full, the kitchen is a bit small, and there needs to be more than one microwave.

Liked: Very clean kitchen, great to have lots of space to hang out and eat.

Disliked: Toilet flush didn't work that well, and the bathroom was a little dirty, but for one night's stay it's fine. Not a huge amount of flexibility in having to arrive between 5-6pm if you haven't pre-paid in full.

Liked: The facilities were extremely well-kept- spotless and handsome looking. Ian, our host, was also very helpful and charming.

Disliked: It seemed inconvenient that it was closed for the day, but I was able to drop my bags off and return later to check in. Ian was kindly accomodating.

As a family with children

Family Holiday

31 July 2012

Liked: Convenient location near station. Facilities acceptable. breakfast was cheap & plentiful.

Disliked: Staff were friendly for most of visit until I discovered our train tickets were missing just before departure. this resulted in a frantic unpacking of rucksacks. The female warden helped look for the tickets for approx 30 seconds before infroming me that she really should charge us for checking out late (15 minutes- the other warden had informed me that check out was 10.30 ISH- it was 10.45). Extremely insensitive. Tickets were found in nearby community centre car park which we hadnt visited. Therefore unable to comment on security at hostel as I am unsure how this occured.
