Brilliant hostel. One of the best I've stayed in. 6 bed Mixed dorm was ideal. Clean and secure. Friendly, helpful staff and great place to meet other people whilst travelling solo. Excellent location to city center amenities (short 10 mins walk) Kitchen facilites were perfect and the included breakfast is a very good bonus. Would deffo stay again.
