The best thing about this property is the location. A mere stones throw from most attractions BUT the question is would i stay again and honest answer is no. I understood its a hostel but the condition of the property is in dire need of a lot of TLC . We had no heating, not hot water, tbh the tap barely worked at all. The mattress was aweful as was the door slamming all through the night. Reception was friendly and were accommodating but that was it. Id suggest getting a room at the back of the property to avoid street noise.

Difficult to find
Good location, single rooms which is rare. Very difficult to find as evetything on Strand Road starts with "The Strand". Indian Restaurant signage out the front very confusing. Otherwise very good
