    I just spend there for one night but Ashley the receptionist was extremely lovely and make me feel safe and very welcoming. As a transgender traveler I have to cope with discrimination everywhere including hostel. She said my room is iust next to you if you need anything or somebody do anything to you. The location was brilliant in the centre and there’s so many food around and 500m from central station.

    Internet was very slow

    Location and staff

    The bed was terrible and old carpets. Building doesn’t have good conditions to live.

    It's cheaper than most, location is great, there is WiFi, sheets are clean, and staff are friendly.

    It's budget with a capital B. You get a blanket only if you know to ask for it, even mid winter, , there is bass pumping through the floor from the shop below, the showers are either burn hot or freeze cold, there are lockers but no mention to bring a padlock, several of the guests appear to be between homes which is fine except they spread like fungus around the room, the hallway has a weird smell in it, the bathroom lock jams, the bedroom locks are manual, staff enter rooms at 7.30am on a Sunday to change linen.
