Not great. But cheap.

Pretty poor experience, but hard to complain at price.

Breakfast advertised as from 0700, but starts at 0800. Paid for double room (single occupancy) was given a single but price not adjusted. Unable to pay by card. Lucky I had cash. No blind or curtain at window. Was staying in Dover a week on a budget. Paid the extra £15 a night to stay elsewhere.

What do you expect for the money....

Booked a double, confirmed by email, phoned to say bad traffic as travelling from other side of country.

Got a room smelling of mould (none seen) with three single beds fixed and not moveable. Fair price, very basic, stain on duvet cover, very smelly of musty mould.

Basic accommodation

If you just want a cheap room in Dover this is ideal.

There's a kitchen on 1st floor for tea & coffee. The room was warm, had en suit shower room and TV. Bed was comfy. Only downside was place smelt a bit musty. Breakfast was cereals, tea, toast, boiled egg & cheese.

Dont Take this Hostel

We spend 1 Day in Dover and Most of the places are fully bookt so we have to Take this.

When we arrived we couldent find someone to Open the door After i callt the Hostel the Open the door. He was very unfriendly and it we feel like undesirable. the room was smelly. When we Check out we like to Pay but the they told use we changed your Credit Card. It says on the booking that the cc is just for Garantie!!. So yes if you find a other Place Take it!!!

We only required basic accommodation, as we had to leave at 4.00 am.

The Alma hostel provided basic, clean, comfortable accommodation & was good value for money. If this is all that's required, then I would recommend it. It,s also very central in Dover.

A Hostel

No parking outside but on public road about 200 yards away.

Narrow corridor and stairway leading to bedrooms. Tiny room on roadside of building was dated and grubby. Didn't use the kitchen!. I wouldn't pay £40 a night for this, again.

Not good

Rooms are very small, but they are clean and tidy.

No issue there. The problems are with the fact the is the windows are not double glazed, so you hear every car and drunk that passes the hotel (as the room over looks the Main Street). Leading to a very bad night sleep. There are no curtains fitted up at the windows so that once the sun rises, so do you. Free Wi-Fi is a great idea, however the Wi-Fi did not reach the room that I was staying in.

It was definitely a wonderful living experience.

The owner was very friendly and helpful as well. Rooms are appropriate seeing the money invested and the bathroom was clean and spacious. It was a good experience overall.
