Where to start with this place....
On our way to Sheffield the hostel called me, but i missed the call, i called back 4 times and no one answered, i left a voicemail, but i never did find out what they wanted.
It looks like its about to have a long over due refurbish as there was boxes of flooring in the hall way. (but looking at other reviews, this sounds like its already happened)
Our room was the first double as you walk in and it STANK of stale cigarettes. we opened a window but this didn't really help.
The bathrooms were upstairs but none of the showers worked, apart from one that was in an unmarked room with wet towels all over the floor, and we only noticed this because it was on constantly.
The guy who took our payment when we first got there was ok, but not very focused on us, was more bothered about talking to his "colleague" who he told us couldn't speak English.
On leaving, after not being able to have a shower, we handed the key back and as we were going out the door a member of staff yelled "**** off back to London" to us.
I would 100% never stay at this hostel again!
