This was my first time staying in a hostel and on the whole I was pleasantly surprised. It certainly exceeded my expectations.

Some of the best places I've stayed at have been hostels but at the YHA the hearing wasn't working, wifi wasn't working, the mattresses stunk of mouldy feet, pubic hairs all over the toilets on the room floors and they really smelt!
