I spent 1 night there. The place is cleaned, 4-bed rooms, a bit noisy but it's normal since people enter and exit in the from at any time. The mattress is on average, don't expect much but is close to the center and the train station.

Nice as we arrived but we were hit by a stench and felt like the whole place was mouldy and damp this is probably the reason why it smelt like feet the whole time. To say this is a budget hostel we paid £44 for a room for one night for just two of us when hotels start at around... More

Bunkroom, Owner at The Bunkroom, responded to this review

Hi, thought I would respond to your review. Dealing with the price first. Yes, it does say £18 on the side of the building. However, this is per person and is our weekday price for a bed in a shared room. We charge £22 per person on the weekend. I'm not sure you will find a hotel room for £50... More

Bunkroom, Owner at The Bunkroom, responded to this review

I'm not sure which guest you are that stayed at the Bunkroom. However, to expect a room at 5am is strange. Should I remove people from their room so that you can sleep in it? That is rather arrogant of you don't you think? Please give everyone on Tripadvisor the names of the hotels where it is possible to check-in... More

The host (Graham) was soooo kind and friendly, he always didn't forget to ask me how my travel and journey was and that did make me feel way better as I was travelling by myself.

Good location, close to train station and city centre. Friendly staff. Kitchen well equipped. However, carpet had definitely not been hoovered in the room I stayed in. What is more, there is only one bathroom shared between few rooms, no separate toilets, so if it's busy, you might need to wait.
