Friendly and convenient location
Staff were amazing polite and friendly. Little issues were easily and quickly dealt with. The short walk from the station to the hostel made getting there very easy. Not top class but good enough for what you pay.

Thumbs up!
Good hostel. Wouldn't hesitate to book again! Everything up to standard. 24 hour reception is great. Easy to find, I managed to find free parking from 4pm-10am but this required research, checking restrictions and a moderate walk. Minor nitpicks: No wifi in bedrooms, shower pressure serviceable but on the lower side, (but warm and spacious) Don't let these dissuade you, they are the only improvements I could think of. Thank you to the staff.
