This heritage building is in downtown Cumberland. The two hotels in town are nearby and play loud live music until late on Saturday nights. The common area is right next to the sleeping area so if your fellow hostel visitors like to stay up late and socialize and you are a light sleeper then you're out of luck. I didn't see any Quiet Hours posted.
Bathrooms were clean, each one having basin, toilet and combo bath/shower. The kitchen is large and good.
You need to arrive before 10pm when the front door is locked.
