Hotel is clean. In a great location-close to train station and the centre. There is a big kitchen and a lounge area. Staff are really friendly. Rooms are really spacious. Toilets and showers are not in the room but across the hall

Room Tip: There are no lockers for your bags etc

Check-in was very efficient and with a warm welcome. Although it was a busy Saturday night and the hostel was fully booked, I could get a good sleep, as everybody was respectful and kept quiet. Although a lot of people were queuing to check-out on Sunday morning to collect their deposit, the staff was acting again very efficiently and friendly! Nice staff and guests!

Clean and tidy, location was perfect however the Swiss receptionist was extremely rude during our stay. I would recommend if you have to stick to a low budget, no thrills, shared ablutions but overall pretty happy!

Do'nt get 3rd floor accommodation as the toilets and showers on 2nd floor. 16 of us came down from Glasgow for a 'stag' weekend. Accommodation was great, right in the city centre and a few minutes
walk from the train station. Very helpful staff.
