The rooms were really clean and comfy. The rooms are on the smaller side so if you're travelling alone get comfy. The bathroom was also very clean. The bar and kitchen downstairs were amazing and made the stay so much nicer. The location was good with a Tesco and a number of fast food places open to eat until 5am. I would definitely stay at this hostel again, the staff, location and rooms were amazing. - Ruby, England

Also, sometimes the staff is remiss in keeping things as clean as they should be, but they are usually on top of any problems or issues if you bring it to their attention.
