1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The bathrooms were covered in mold. The shower was either scathing hot or ice cold, nothing in between. Staff was ok but it didn’t seem like any of them had a firm grasp on their job. All the furniture was worn down, my bunk didn’t even have a light our outlet like everyone else’s in the room.

The best hostel I’ve stay in the UK
I would of like the option of reserving a top or bottom bunk bed, as one was reserved but I don’t remember be given this option. Additionally I wish I had been made more aware of the ID requirements as there was almost a issue as I forgot my passport and only have my bank card for ID. Apart from that a lovely place that I am planning on visiting again
