We booked a private double room with ensuite which upon arrival was found to be a double bunk bed with another single bed in the room. This would have been fine if james had not kept banging his head on the bed above. The room and bathroom were both clean and a reasonable size, though both rooms were very cold. There was plenty of hot water in the morning.
Continental breakfast consisted of bread, cereal and toast - I would recommend going for something heartier somewhere else. The staff appeared to be friendly and helpful and there is free wifi if you have a smartphone (though this only works on the ground floor).
The best thing about this hostel is the location. It is central for shops, bars and cafes which is ideal when you don't want miles to walk in the cold and rain. However, in terms of cost I felt that this was a little overpriced and a bed and breakfast would have been more value for money. But then, I'm not a hostel kind of girl ;-)
