Liked: We stayed in a great room upstairs. It had a fantastic view on the town and see. It was very clean and pleasant. Walking distance from the train station and right on the door step of the city centre.

Liked: This hostel has a friendly and communal aspect in which visitors can feel a part of a group of friends. It is placed in the town centre, close to shops and pubs, and offers a good place in which to stay for a visit to the English Riviera.

Disliked: Not so well placed for access to public transport, which could be a minor drawback for anyone new to the town.
