This hostel has heaps of great qualities - exceptionally clean, well organised, lovely breakfast with plenty of options, £1 dinners and free desserts! The £1 dinners are offered a few nights a week, as are the free desserts. We didn't get to partake in the dessert as it is served at 7pm which was too early for us. The £1 dinner was a yummy home cooked chicken curry and kudos to the owners who would clearly make a loss on this! Get in early as they can only prepare enough for 20 people max. The breakfast included yoghurt, tinned fruits, a variety of cereals, toast and heaps of different spreads, croissants and welsh cakes (my new fave!). The only downside was the hot bedroom meant we had to have our window open so noisy drunks out the front disturbed our sleep on both nights. Not really the hostels fault! Oh and there was a mix up with our deposit for our locks in terms of what I believed I had paid (£20) what I was reimbursed (£10). Learning experience for me - always get a receipt!
