My partner and I booked a double private bedroom a couple of weeks ago. It was about £50 per night which seemed reasonable. The room/hostel was fairly clean, however we got given room 205, which is overlooking on the street, above a PUB and next door to a CLUB. I can tell you that my bed was vibrating to the music of the nightclub next door until 3,00AM everynight.... Not very relaxing. We did complain on the 2nd night and got given another room in the back building, which was much nicer and quiet. There are free earplugs given at the reception, but if you are a light sleeper, this wont be much help.
Great hostel, amazing staff, fairly clean, but I will have to knock off 2 stars for the constant noise due to the nightlife.
