It was good
Was good enough place for the very cheap price
Much improved since my last stay.
Very affordable hostel. Warm, I liked it! Friendly service! But a few recommendations: as the fridge is in the common room, it should be opened earlier on morning: now the early-leavers cannot keep the food there. I would have very much appreciated a kettle in the kichen! Anyway, what kind of traveler has any with him/herself? Kitchen is totally useless without pot.
You definitely get what you pay for with this one. I booked a single room for only £30. I wasn't expecting much but I think the least you should expect when paying somewhere to sleep is a mattress you can actually sleep on. I would honestly feel guilty making my dog sleep on this mattress! Expect a lot of noise and door slamming but this is not something I would blame the hostel for. My advise, unless you are going to have a few drinks to help you to sleep, spend a little more and sleep elsewhere if you actually want a proper nights sleep.
