2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Really one word for it disappointed, this was a last minute booking so looked at the pictures, price range and location all good until we got there, I mean the place it's OKAY but is a £20-£30/night kind of place NOT £80, first of all there was not parking space when really stated on Expedia that we needed one and been told to park along the road when we got here, the entrance of the place not welcome at all as you have to go through two hallways to get to the reception where if there's more than two people arriving in the same time that's it traffic jam no one is going in or out the building, then THE ROOMS which really looked nice in the pics, but NO stander box room, old furniture SHARED BATHROOMS with one toilet and one shower for £80 a night big no no, plus the bathrooms have hair on the floor which look unhygienic and to get to your room from the reception area you literally had to go around the corner where you had to go past all the rubbish bins area to go in to the building, just not okay for the price, so super disappointed, really didn't want to stay here when realized all this but we check in late after 8 hrs drive plus the place is non refundable which again made feel like I just been mugged. One more thing if there's something not working properly in the hostel fix it don't make guest be responsible them, like the rule ,,no hairdryer cause the fire alarms are sensitive" really? Again you're charging £80/night. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND!

I liked this place but I was not expecting the reception/lounge to be in a separate building from the rooms. I’m not the biggest fan of that so just something to keep in mind. Still a nice place though.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The bathrooms are mixed gender and have toilets and showers in the same room. I'm fine with a mixed dorm room but shared bathroom made me feel vulnerable. As a single female traveler, it was awkward showering and then having a man using the toilet right next to me.

Great All-around
I stayed in a 6 mixed dorm with river view. This has been my best hostel experience to date. It's in a good location, there are blackout curtains on the bunks, the bunks are tall enough that you don't hit your head, the bedding is comfortable, the staff are friendly, and it had a quiet, chill environment. It's a small hostel, so if it were at full capacity I think the space in common areas/kitchen/bathrooms would be far too small. I'd stay again as long as it wasn't busy. :)
