    The staff were very pleasant. The breakfast was ab fab. Could not ask for more in the way of facilities. The stroll along the riverside was very pleasant. I highly recommend this yha. Very clean bedding.

    Not really a complaint but the bunk beds were a little rickity.

    Although it was about 15 mins walk out of town it was in a nice quiet area,the staff at the hostel were pleasant and helpful and the breakfast was good value

    The rooms were a little shabby and the toilets and showers were very cramped

    I enjoyed the breakfast and size of rooms/hostel - there were good facilities for the backpacker ie washing/ kitchen in addition.

    I experienced difficulty in operating the television. However, despite request to three members of staff- none knew how to operate the same- leaving me not having the opportunity to watch tv!!

    The Catering kitchen was nice - clean and tidy.

    The blanket has some bad smell - seems like it hasnt cleaned or shone by the sun for a long time

    Superb

    The staff were friendly and welcoming, and we were made to feel immediately at ease. Local Public Transport information was available and it's location to the city (easily within walking distance) was perfect. Thankyou!

    The staff at YHA are really friendly, it was fun staying here and the walk along the river is lovely. The facilities are good for a Youth Yostel and what we expected. Bed linen nice an fresh. We had fun making our beds up, but are probably a bit old for Youth Hostels at 38, 45 & 47 but for just one night it was fine :-) We enjoyed our experience :-)

    When you drive in its a bit shocking as the photo on the net is from the front of the building which looks lovely, but you drive into the back and that looks like an old hospital, not very inviting, but hey its nice inside and it is a Youth Hostel so its not really about the look of the building on the outside, just close your eyes til you walk through the door ;-) It was nice having a room to ourselves, but very basic and walls are like paper so if you get a noisy party coming in don't expect to sleep all night, other than that generally quiet :-)

    It was a pleasant walk along the river away from the city centre where we explored the cities attractions, parks and shopping. The hostel itself was friendly alongside lots of information about good deals, trip ideas and walks wtc

    The only downfall of the yha hostel was the cleaning regime - everywhere was clean - however I felt there would be a better way to clean rooms than cut off access to all rooms from 10 - 1. There is only one unisex toilet to use downstairs when his happens which os used by everyone, children included, which should b cleaned more regularly if this is to be the mai toilet. I'm not wishing to complain just feel improvements could and should b made in these areas.

    The laid back and friendly atmosphere there.

    The hidden costs those being; £3 extra on the hotel if your not a member, renting towels, buying a lock if u want your stuff safe.

    Fabulous

    There was a really nice female member of staff on reception.

    There were some very drunk youths who came back at 5.00 in the morning and woke us up, and carried on talking loudly in the next door room for the next two hours. It totally ruined what would have been a good experience.

    Fabulous

    I stayed 2 full days and 2 half days. The full breakfast was very good and also the evening meal (pittza). bed was comfortable although squeaky. Hostel was CLEAN.

    Evening meal was the same each day, i.e. Pittza or nothing! Same with the breakfast as it was not possible to buy just cereal for instance, or just toast. It was all or nothing.I do not ALLWAYS want a big breakfast. There was a good beer selection but real ale. I thought that the temporary membership fee of £9 + was a bit drastic as well. How long does it last?

    The bar area was nice

    Rooms were smelly. YHA charge £3 per person per night that appears in small print on the booking confirmation, which is a bit sneaky. Even though, staff tried to charge us even more.

    Charged more than quoted,but in too big a rush to argue. Room/block showed alot of wear and tear. Noisy neighbours in early hours more than once,not good with young family noisy plumbing in night
