Nice simple place. Amazing staff and ok breakfast. Only problem was the sound coming from the pub, but for me was fine.
Francisco, gb3 night trip
Good 6.0
On the whole it’s OK
Great location, staff are very helpful and it’s the cheapest hostel in this area. The mattress that was in my bed was old and saggy in the middle, which made for an unpleasant nights sleep. The place could really do with a freshen up as all the facilities seem to be well used. Aside from that I would recommend it, and have just booked my second stay there.

Bunk beds in a big enough room by the street.
A small hostel on the upstair of a pub, and it is very clean. If you only want to stay for a sleep it is good enough. But if you are a light sleeper ,mind street is really noisy.

Very friendly place. The staff really care

Judge on your own
Maybe I was expecting a bit too much. Friendly staff in general, breakfast was ok. Two things were unacceptable: loud music in the pub of the hostel, I mean they know there is a hostel next to the pub, it's their hostel, though the music went loud as a club until late. The other thing is towels were not offered and were charged rather expensive. Would I stay again? No. But maybe this is just my standards. Some people were renting monthly.
