Only stayed one night, but noticed that the hostel was efficiently run. Reception booked us tickets to Trad on the Prom and it was phenomenal!

We were given the wrong room twice. The first time we got a 4 person room with single bunkbeds, the 2nd we got 1 double bunkbed and a single bunkbed. Despite emailing and getting confirmation we had reserved a room with 1 double bunkbed.
