Everything in this hostel is good. Unless roommate because she want to turn off the light whole day like turn off the light on 6.30 pm. while everyone want the light for preparing stuff and luggage and doing something. I thinks hostel should do something with such people like move her to other room.

Perfect with a bit of improvement
The beds are comfy but do make quite a lot of noise when moving around so that need to be sorted out. I was in room 1 and the condition of the bathroom was absolutely disgusting I mean I saw 2 pair of boxers on the floor don't know how long it was there for, hair in the wash basin and it was just filthy plus the bins seemed like it wasn't empty for some time which was quit shocking because the least they can do is clean it. I do however have to say the staff are very friendly and helpful and they will try and accommodate you if think the bed isn't suitable. The location is perfect I mean it takes 10 minutes to the train station and there is a bus stop on baker lane which if take left from the entrance, walk down the road and turn left. Here you will find numerous bus routes such as number 7 park and ride designer outlet as well as many other bus routes. I am not saying I won't stay here again because this review is based on my second trip and my first trip was actually last week so I would be lieing if i said I didn't enjoy my stay. However in my honest opinion this isn't suitable for a long stay. For the price you pay is more than worth it and I will go as far as saying there isn't anything else for this price that you might like. So for 2-3 it's perfect like I would say don't even doubt your booking and book instantly but 5 plus nights I would say other places might be better. I would recommend this but the points I mentioned in terms of cleanliness needs to be considered.
