Arrived mid afternoon, 2 hours before the rest of my group arrived, went to check in and pay for my bed but was told by the arrogant bouncer (host/barman/manager) I'd have to pay for all of our groups beds (over £300) as I can't just pay for one.( I've never had this in any hotel/hostel/B&B/Lodge before, absolutely ridiculous). So instead of being able to relax in bed I have booked I had wait in the bar on a 'quirky, trendy' picnic bench, (still can't feel my backside) Once the group arrived we paid for our beds (took a lifetime to sort out). Then get told that he wants to search our bags for alcohol, (nowhere I have ever stayed before does this). We're not 17 years for gods sake.
Rooms were 'adequate' at best, doubt anyone over 5' could get to the 3rd bunk up though. The most disturbing thing was the lack of showers and toilets. 1 shower 3 toilets on the whole floor. All sinks don't fit the taps and just spray everywhere so floors are soaking. I just hope it was just water not anything else...,, Why have key card access to them if the main door has a key card access too???
Overall experience was pretty poor, we were a group of friends on a just a weekend away but this place was like Fort Knox with the 'bouncers' and key cards during day and night, inside and out. Not made any better than by the arrogant male members of staff.
The only plus was that's its on the high street, easy to find and that I have stayed in worse hostels before (just a shame they were in sticks of Malaysia and cost £1.50 per night not £30
