        Good”

        I stayed here and wondered why it was £10 cheaper than a backpackers just up the road... I soon found out why! The bedsheets were clean in my room, but everything else...wasn't! My suitcase was covered in dust and hair from being on the dirty floor during storage, the one bathroom on my floor with a working lock was nice and spacious but kind of gross (weird rust drips in the shower). One of the toilets on my floor was out of order due to a leak in the ceiling and the other didn't have a lock on which sucks. The two staff I encountered were really friendly (a young, Scottish guy and Australian lady) and helped me out, showing me to my room and with storing my bag. I was SO dispappointed to find out that the hostel doesn't recycle!!! So all recyclable items were going into a bin that goes straight to landfill. This is incredibly irresponsible from a business in the 21st century.

        Basic hostel in the middle of the town. ”

        The hostel is basic, it looks a bit rough on the outside, but it's got all the essentials. I stayed in a 4 mixed room and it was ok. A little bit small and beds are noisy, but ok. Showers and toilets were clean. Staff was quick at check-in. The location is great, a 5 minutes walk from the centre and surrounded by shops, pubs and other amenities (bus station too). Recommended.

        Adventage: Good location and staff, I prefer shared living and kitchen room. Disadventage: Toilets, Shower and bed room are quite of tiny size, and kinda dirty a litte bit. And also shower room you can't to control volume or pressure of water.
