small but bearable

5 of us shared a 3 bunk bed room, was due to be 6 of us but luckly some one dropped out.

there was not enough room for luggage on the floor so the empty bed was used for storage space,

room was clean an beds comfy. showers were a let down, they did not drain so water ever where, power showers were very good tho. shame drainage did not work. good location for city center

OK for what it is, a hostel

NOTE: the hostel is undergoing redevelopment (possibly because of all the previous terrible reviews).

This isn't an overly pretty place to stay, it's not overly quiet but it is a hostel, not a hotel.

The room was clean enough, bed clean (albeit very squeaky). Everyone was given an individual key but annoyingly there was nowhere in the room the securely lock personal items away.

Front desk were very friendly and helpful on arrival, the guy was chatty and welcoming. Leaving not so helpful and chatty but they were polite. There was a lot of dirt and dust everywhere but as stated this was due to the renovation works. Previous reviews are a tad too OTT on the moaning stakes. After all, £22 a night for a bed and communal bathroom is hardly too much to as for is it. As a last minute booking Id recommend it. The location is perfect if you're going to the arena!
