    The location was amazing, just across the bridge from the coach terminal and the city centre. It was an easy walk to restaurants, shops, and several of the colleges. There were several lockers available both in the rooms and out in the hallway. Each room door has its own combination lock, which was felt more secure than having room keys (although you have to remember the code or always carry it with you to open the room door). They also provide free luggage storage upon checkout, which is really nice to be able to explore the city more before leaving at night.

    There was a weird musty smell in the hallway leading to the rooms, but I'm not sure if that was from people or the hallway carpet. Breakfast, although free, had a long wait as there were not enough toasters and kettles for everyone, unless you wanted just cereal. There were also only 3 showers and 3 toilets for girls for seemingly the entire hostel.

    Location.

    Only thing that was reasonable to use it was the bathroom but the rest wasn’t. You understand it’s a hostel and will be full of people but the room had not ventilation, dirty and smelly. A lot of homeless people stay which is fine they need a place to sleep but they stuffs smells and it’s everywhere. I tried to yak at the reception but they didn’t help. I check out early and leaving a day before due. I didn’t receive a an apology or my money either a refund for the night I haven’t sleep.

    Good atmosphere, wonderful value for money. Availability of tea and coffee ay any time was a great bonus

    There was nothing I didn't like. Nobody could grumble at a basic hostel being basic! Full marks!

    I only chose it because I needed to be near the station

    I was allocated a bed and when I came late at night someone else was in it
