Out of the way Nov 19, 2011
I sadly didn't enjoy my stay here. It wasn't easy to find, as I couldn't get hold of a map beforehand and it was difficult getting help and even a shop around the corner had no idea where the street is. It's about a 10 minute bus ride into town. Five pounds will buy you a bus pass to get you anywhere in the area (on First city buses) for a day (until 1am).

Security is very poor. When I checked in they unlocked the door to the dorm room - and don't give you a key. The room is left unlocked, so anybody can get in, and the lockers provided are situated so that you can't actually get a bag into them - more of a wardrobe for a jacket or two. A key deposit gets you a key for the back door for after hours entry, but after dark there's no light or directions for you to work out how to find the back door.

There is a kitchen and dining room, which I didn't use. The tv room was more comfortable, but no food or drink allowed in there.
