Hostel is a bit shabby and soulless despite some good modifications such as usb charging and lamps for each bunk. Good security too.

Difficult to find quiet space to read, eat, Dorm sparsely furnished. Unable to sit on bed or sit up in bed (very low top bunks & one chair in 6 bed dorm),noisy at times although nights were quiet, OK if out all day, not always possible. Mattress v. uncomfortable! Some noise beyond staffs control, doors closing/banging. I found it v. different to the traditional SYHA & it took time to understand how this hostel functioned. Staff v. friendly & helpful.

A great hostel, fairly priced in a lovely location. The staff were very helpful, particularly when it came to the bikes storage, which is as secure as I've come across.
