Stood for 20 mins behind two guys trying to check in Thursday, slept ok that night after midnight( hey it’s over a bar, so expected!), rowdier Friday night, then woken at 2:20 am by stamping shouting singing young men on the floor above…. Obviously having a great time up there, never slept a wink! Checked out a day early and sought a good nights sleep elsewhere! Great location, but bring earplugs!!

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Poor cleanliness and lack of activities
I had a single ensuite room booked. I was disappointed to find that when i checked in, there was urine in the toilet, with stains on the toilet seat. The toilet roll dispenser was full of black mouldy toilet roll which looked like it hadn't been replaced in months. The toilet roll dispenser is also in a very silly place, dorectly underneath the shower head, so any toilet roll sticking out immediately becomes paper mache and can't be used. The bedding was also extremely dusty, any small movements would release a huge amount of dust that was clearly visible on the bedside lamps. I became concerned for the effect it could have on my lungs. Lastly, the hostel wasnt great for solo travellers. The bar was good but there were no activities organised to help get you to meet new people (or if there was, there was no information on this).
Stayed 5 nights in Nov 2021
