We booked online after reading positive reviews. Email communication was slow with the hostel but they did reply. We got to the hostel and the reception area looked OK, they did food and had a little bar area. I think we were ripped off booking train tickets through the hostel as we were charged £4 each extra for them to book our tickets and then we found 2 ticket offices in 100 metres radius of this hostel which they didn't even tell us! Once we got to the room things went even more downhill, it was like a squat. The door didn't even fit the frame as it was warped, the single glazed windows just let all the cold in, so the heating was working overtime. It was freezing in the room, all the time! The shared bathroom was miles away, 2 floors down, across 2 courtyards and round this little alley. The toilets and showers may have been outside as there was no main door on the rooms. We didn't shower here at all during our stay and checked out as soon as we found somewhere else to stay. The staff were Ok, they tried to accommodate us, we had booked a hostel and were given a triple room when we checked in, when we said we wanted to check out early they said we could move into a twin room with private bathroom but that room was even worse. Sorry, ths place needs serious renovation! we even found vomit that hadn't been cleaned down one side of one of the beds. gross!!
