I stayed here overnight in July and was pleasantly surprised on arrival at the friendly and helpful staff plus the high standard of refurbishment at this hostel. Everything has been chosen carefully to create a welcoming atmosphere and ensuring maximum comfort for visitors staying at this hostel. The tasteful refurbishment also reflects the local history and character of this historic city. There is an open lounge area and dining room leading on to a secure pleasant courtyard area to the rear of the hostel. There are 4 bike lockers in the courtyard area with ample seating. My en suite bedroom (Room 112) overlooked the front of the hostel and was very comfortable. The shower was hot and the whole hostel was spotlessly clean.
There is a good selection of food on the menu and portions are generous. I had a 12inch pizza which was delicious and freshly cooked. The bar area is well stocked an very competitively priced. It's only a 20min. walk into the city centre and the receptionist will provide you with a map and advise you on the best way to get there avoiding the busy roads. All the staff I met during my brief stay were very helpful, cheerful and friendly. I would certainly recommend anyone to stay at this hostel. As a single traveller I felt safe, secure and look forward to staying here again. This is a wonderful example of a hostel renovated to a high standard throughout and coupled with such friendly staff makes an ideal place to stay in this historic city. Try it and see for yourselves!
