14 June 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Really great hostel. The bedrooms are nice, the curtains on the bunks a really nice touch, and the lockers under the beds a very spacious. Bathrooms were clean and hot water good. Breakfast was pretty good, although I didn't get any waffles! Dinner was free on different days than as advertised so you might want to check that if it influences your booking. Only real bummer about the place is that the wifi doesn't work very well, although it seemed to be better in the bedroom rather than in the lounge area. Staff were friendly and helpful - thank you in particular to Adam for being really helpful (I think that was his name - long blonde hair).
