    Nice hostel in a safe area close to the Hoe and city center. Located in a typical English house. Very friendly and helpfull staff. Old school type of a hostel which makes a great atmosphere. Clean kitchen and facilities, a backyard to chill out.More

    Filthy house that has clearly been cheaply converted into a 'hostel' and used for 20 years with next to no renovation. Frendlyish owner and reasonably located but I would advise you avoid this place. At £19 a dorm bed its not even good valueMore
