    have you got a room with 4 beds but no bunks please
    27 February 2017|
    Response from teepeeDerbyshire | Reviewed this property |
    Not sure, the room we had just had four bunks and a seperate room with a double bed, probably best to contact the hostel direct.
    are dogs welcome and is there any extra charge ?

    Hi. I don't know the answer but presume dogs are not welcome unless Yha have changed their policy.
