Very good 8.0
Everything was good except for the shower. The water didn't drain when you take a shower. It accumulated and would flow o e into the floor.

Lovely room, shame about the rest
We stayed over the Christmas period. Our en suite private room was clean, big and bright. However, multiple staff members couldn’t answer our questions about the Christmas meal at the bar (including what time it was) despite lots of advertising for it. Free pancake breakfast you have to cook yourself. Didn’t expect to have to pay for WiFi when you pay for a private room. Kitchen is small for the size of the hostel and needs updating.
