The location is brilliant and it is very modern and comfortable with good beds and shower facilities. The common room/ dining room is well organised. The only slight downside was that there were no food lockers and , as I didn't see the warden to pay my balance either on arrival or in the morning I left the money in a secure place having e-mailed the warden to let him know. Other than that a great place.

Lovely location and good cooking facilities, comfy beds. all we needed for our stay. Could be more prominent information on recycling as there were two contradictory notices on the walls and the two staff we saw were not totally clear, yet there is good recycling encouraged by the council and most bins are clearly labelled. Not sure if hostel ones were.

The place was lovely, well equipped and comfortable. The warden was very helpful. I did feel a bit vulnerable sleeping in a dorm with no lock on the door. I would have felt happier knowing that only I and anyone else booked into that room could access it. Apart from that I really couldn't fault it. I have already recommended it to friends and will continue to do so. I will also stay there again - hopefully.
