Good hostel. Quiet not a party hostel. Fairly clean great location. Good if your working. Staff were nice and cheap pub meals downstairs were decent. No TV room or really anywhere to socialise. Kitchen was very small but adequate just avoid at peak times. Staff were really nice and helpful but very much just a bed place avoid if you want to party or socialise within the hostel. Good if your passing through or working.
