Unfortunately the location is noisy as it is in close proximity to the Fire Station and the Railway. Not the fault of YHA but it was something I was not prepared for. On another YHA stay I would take ear plugs so I have a solution. I cannot rate the "green" practices as I was not aware of them. I didn't cook at the hostel. Thank you. Kathleen.
