The only thing about this hostel is the location, right next to the bus station in case you have to leave early next morning.
The wi-fi DOES NOT work on laptops. Many people were complaining about it but no one seemed to care to fix it.. The whole place is dirty, the kitchen was a disaster. I was given a bed in a 4-bed room and there were clothes and rubbish all over the place, I could not walk around without stepping on something nasty.. Good for one night only...
Last minute at a late hour and it was available
Good location. Walkable distance from ferry and town centre. Parking on site. Friendly and helpful staff. Good deals with local pubs and restaurants as a guest of this hostel, simply show your wristband (you get given a wristband on arrival)
Everything within the hostel is shut from 10pm. So you are unable to use the kitchen or even sit in the lounge area. While this is good for those trying to sleep it does mean that if you don’t want to go out, you end up sitting in your rooms instead. This is either really antisocial or if you socialise in your rooms instead, could be even more disruptive to those trying to sleep around you.
Need some new thermostats on cookers, plus so.e mid-sized saucepans.
Friendly staff and good location
Right next to a fright train that went all night. Obviously very thin walls could hear absolutely everything from the taps, microwave and General thumping from the rooms above. Tidy but not clean.
