Really cool hostel as it's an old jailhouse so is quite different. We stayed in a 2 bed room was ok size. Showers were hot and clean. Reception desk helpful. Location was ok a few bars and pubs around but area pretty quiet in general....More
The room were nice and it’s really unique and interesting. The female facilities were good, never had to wait for a shower. The kitchens were large but the ovens could have done with a clean. All in all it was a comfortable stay.
