Poor 2.0
not very helpful - avoid
I cancelled with plenty of notice and was refused option to move dates or refund my costs. Not very helpful or understanding. I had a sick relative that could not attend so we wanted to move dates. Awful customer service

Exceptional 10.0
Private rooms more like hotel standard than hostel
David, ie2 night trip
Poor 2.0
Shocking attitude
Terrible service from reception when rang to enquire about left belongings. Was not interested and did not care with a blasé attitude.
Tony, gb1 night business trip
Very good 8.0
Lovely hotel (take your own towels!)
We would definitely recommend staying here - the room was great and service great. Our only real frustration was not being informed by that there are no towels and that you either bring your own or rent them for £2 each. So we had to pay when we could have just brought our own (which would have been fine for us). Breakfast was about £6.50 each, for cooked breakfast, cereal, juice, coffee/tea, pastries, etc. Good value!
