We were forced to sleep on the couch in the reception area as our room would not open. Prior to this the owner was aggresive towards us and blamed us for the door malfunctioning. There is a phone number for emergencies and as it was 01:30 am we tried calling it but got no answer. Eventually the owner arrived and... More

What a horrible place. The manager Al was rude and arrogant, the place was dirty and dingy. I know you get what you pay for but this place really isn't worth paying for. Spend your money elsewehere and get somethiong semi decent.

The hostel is in an old house but refurbished inside. The twin room is so lovely, tidy,quiet and clean. You have kitchen on ground floor. The only problem is the room is really small, as well the bath room. But I think it is still great to stay here.

Stayed here for a night this weekend (part of a large cycling group). Very welcoming warden who happily offered advice on good food to be had in the vicinity as well as where to avoid. We stayed in the 18 bunk room - which had comfortable beds and was clean enough. Was very impressed by the relaxing roof garden above... More

Great little place, enjoyed my stay here. You have to put your bedding on but it's clean and has all the facilities you'd need. Is only a short walk into town so was convenient, all round a great find!

Bike parking OK but not brilliant. Place is a little run down but secure and Kitchen was very clean. Superb curry house round the corner, have the giant naan. (Good tip from the man) Showers good, there being extras in the cellar. We arrived at 10pm and left before 9am. Sorry Chester.

Thank WaitForPete
