Michael Mckinley thinks…

"Cheap,cheerful, and clean rooms. Very old fashioned but if it's just a bed and breakfast for the night you want with no luxuries then it's perfect."

Liked: Rooms and windows were really big.

Disliked: Rooms were surprisingly pretty cold at night. Also, location wasn´t that great either. Didn´t feel too safe if I was making my way back late at night. Not exactly worth the price: find some place else that´s closer.

27 March 2011 Julian would recommend this property

Liked: McLay's was extremely good value for money, and a stones throw away from all the shops, pubs and restaurants.

Disliked: The rooms came in all sorts of shapes and sizes, some being a large size, and some being very cosy. The showers, whilst clean, were very outdated, and the water only trickled out, but at least it was warm. Whilst we didn't use the wifi there, the "free wifi" was actually £2 for 30 minutes.

Liked: It was more hotel style than hostel style. Friendly reception and the included breakfast is very nice as its just one less thing you have to worry about.

Disliked: Turning the key in at reception everytime you leave the hostel is a bit of a hassel, but other than that I thought everything was great.
