I have been to this hostel previously and it was great but on my last visit with my fiancee I found that the standards that were there before have dropped. Under bed locking cupboard for luggage etc the front electronic pcb and cover falling off every time it was used, thie pcb screws that hold the pcb in place were missing and had never been replaced and cover broken?? why this has never been spotted by the staff I dont know? In the price includes a basic breakfast which is all one needs to start the day, but were running low at 9am?went to breakfast at 9 am (breaksfast is 8 - 11). all the food was sparce and I had to ask the receptionist to restock, she wasnt happy! After a small amount of food added with reluctance they had minimal fruit, Oranges OK Apples OK NO BANANAS when asked, minimal cereal, breads were ok, juices ok, etc Then the toilets in the wash area were loose on their base? wanted a shower at 10.30pm as I was sticky after an evening out and got cold water no warm available. I is not my responsibility to tell them when they need to check their hotel. I had stayed here on 4 other occasions with no problems but its now changed somewhat.... Still a great place to stay but needs to raise its awareness of the problems.... not for me to tell you staff should be checking all these simple things.
