This was seriously the best hostel I've stayed at! The staff were amazing, so helpful and friendly from the minute you arrive. We arrived at around 10pm ish and straight away we were involved in the hostel night out which made us feel really comfortable and welcome. Also, we booked an 8 bed mixed room but our area was like sectioned off so it was more like a 4 bed private which was perfect, such a bonus that we were so happy with! One of the nights we got pretty drunk and had the workers up all night causing hassle and they were so understanding and lovely about it. Even the manager was great when we apologised. Our train was at 4am when we left and they let us stay in the hostel until 1am without paying for an extra night which was so nice of them and made our lives so much easier! Also there's an amazing movie room which is perfect when you have a hangover or if the weather is rainy and drab, stay at this hostel!!!!!
