On a recent vacation to the UK, we stayed at 3 different YHAs and found this one to be pretty average. It was about a 15 minute walk from the CBE train station and closer to 25 or 30 to CBW. It was about 15 min walk to the Cathedral area. It is not very close to any pubs, restaurants or other shopping. It was quite clean. As with all other YHAs, it costs extra for towels and WiFi. The lounge area was nice and we liked being able to purchase drinks. Main complaint is that they lock doors in the late morning and do not allow check in until 4pm. There are lockers in the basement that travelers can put their bags in until check in but we still found this to be quite a late hour.
