I would stay there again
I really liked the hostel. Loads of areas to hangout and relax. The location is also very good, in between the station and the city centre. They let me leave my bag before checking in and after the check out. The hostel is above a couple of night clubs so make sure you bring some earplugs or you could use the ones the hostel gives out for free.

Horrible Location - this Hostel should disclose that their rooms are located directly above three dance clubs. VERY VERY VERY VERY NOISY. I got maybe 2 hours of quiet.

Visited Oxford to study in Bodleian. This place provided a good basic base to sleep. Kept very clean, though could be touch noisy- earplugs provide, very helpful! Get what you are paying for- though the free tea and coffee in kitchen was nice

2/10 Poor

The hostel is lovely but the management will not take responsibility for your safety and there are some violent and aggressive characters

6/10 Good

OK for everything else but sleep.
Excellent service from the reception staff. Shame the weather was so hot, almost boiling and the AC in my room was almost non-existent. Even with an open window, it was simply too hot to spend even an hour in. Checked out straightaway.
