The room was small and sad, the bunk bed cramped and old. The room needed some love and care and probably a bit of money spent on it. I thought it was overpriced, two men having to spend three nights in such a small drab space. I think it's a pity the YHA are not investing more when private hostels and bunk houses are offering better quality and pricing. The cooked breakfast was a disappointment, the produce so obviously cheap and unhealthy. Why not put sound damping on the doors, it was a pain trying to go to sleep hearing all the doors on the corridor banging shut, like being in an asylum. The whole place seems stuck in the 1970s, forlorn and tired and so was I when I left and had to drive the 300 miles home.
I thought the staff were friendly and the self catering kitchen was fine. It was good for our group to be able to feel at home in that space.
