Basic but friendly and warm!
My stay was absolutely fine, to be expected from a hostel.
Staff were lovely. The bedrooms were basic but clean and warm. Great location!
Awful place !
I stayed here with my son for a rugby match at headingly and it was ideally situated but was very disappointed with the state of the accommodation and imo tbh should be shut down for various safety concerns, firstly every room that we entered had the smoke alarms removed and the floor outside the bathroom was sodden and felt like it could collapse at any moment with a damp moldy ceiling underneath which was situated above our room door also wetting the carpet too, and not until night time we also noticed there was no lighting in the hallway and stair area, then the following morning no hot water for the shower and we weren't notified towels were not supplied either and as for the room it said spacious but it was hardly any bigger than the double bed in it and also came with no curtains!
