5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The new rooms ensuite are brilliant. The Youth Hostel is literally only 15 minutes away from the main shopping street. Staff are very friendly. Overall a very pleasant experience.

3/5 Okay

Business traveller
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Radiator was not working in the room, and as the windows were wide open when I arrived it was chilly. They provided an oil filled radiator and this provided some comfort. Brief stay so did not use any other facilities.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Overall OK, quiet, central location and good public transport access, good kitchen, washing machine... Too many doors needing keycard access, even from the lounge to the toilet. Shower room is weird, you get hit by the door if you try to get dried off/dressed outside of the shower.
