    Good welcome, straightforward check-in. Beds were really solid so didn't feel like you were shaking when using the ladder. Nice and warm on a night below freezing temperatures outside. Nice towels available for £2. Keys for lockers

    For a hostel it was great:) Easy check-in, friendly staff, comfy bed, big locker. Even though it was fully booked, it didn't feel crowded, no waiting times at the bathroom etc. Very good atmosphere and although the location was central it wasn't...
