Liked: Free internet.

Disliked: There is this impression of and old and unkempt property, had to try two showers before finding one that worked. Even the staff saying that the reception stays closed only from midnight to 8 am, there was nobody at 8:45 am, when i checked out, and i lost my key deposit (five pounds per person). Also, i don't know what cleaning product they use, but we kept coughing from the first moment we arrived there.

Liked: The atmosphere in general. Todd, the owner of this hostel, is an extremely interesting character. The rest of the staff is all amazingly helpful. My train left 7 hours after the check out time of the day, the staff let me use one of the locker (with lock) for free for that 7 hours, smiling all the time. If I ever come back to this hostel, it is for those amazing people.

Disliked: Actually it would be the location. But seemed like it only bothered me (others were totally satisfied with the location tho). Nothing else.

21 November 2011 Kate would recommend this property

Liked: Staff are awesome - really friendly - the dog is huge and cute - needs a bath though.

Disliked: No TV or sofa - considering it rains a bit, somewhere to chill out a bit more would be good. Also that you have to take your key everywhere when you leave your room - the doors are really heavy and bang - I could feel them slamming downstairs. Also my bed was so squeaky!
