The location was nice because it was only a ten minute walk away from the train station. However, it was a bit dirty and the water was very cold. The beds were also very uncomfortable. The fire alarms went off three times throughout the night. It is already so difficult to fall

Thankyou for leaving us a review. We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your stay with us. Our building is a an old one and due to safety we unfortunately can't let guests into the elevator. We do have lockers on each floor so it's disappointing to hear you weren't made aware of them. Hatters Hostel

I've stayed at a lot of hostels but this is in the top 2 I've hated. On the 5th floor (only have a lift for your bags), the female bathroom is on the 4th and on the 2nd. I was there for 4 days and only 1 day did the 4 toilets work. The rest of the days there was only 1 working

Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to leave a review of your stay with us here at Hatters. Due to the age of the building we can't allow passengers in the lift, it's for safety reasons and we really do value the safety of our guests. Reception are happy to take any bags up in the lift and being on the 5th floor means you get to burn a few more calories!! We don't have any problems with the toilets reported and they are cleaned and restocked twice a day by our lovely housekeepers. Don't forget reception is available 24 hours a day so if you were experiencing problems we would of been more then happy to help. Glad to hear you made the most of the free luggage storage and breakfast!! Happy travels Hatters

I would just say read the one star reviews and its an accurate picture of this place. I've stayed in many different places in the world from Zimbabwe to Borneo, Tokyo to Transylvania. Many hostels, hotels, different places. I would rate this as the worst dump I've ever stayed

Beds were so uncomfortable, and the room was absolutely freezing. Looks like they've half painted the room then decided not to paint the other half. The toilets were the worst thing of all.. The men's toilets were blocked and had poo in all of them. The girls toilets were
