    The staff were seriously amazing here and answered everything from syrfing questions to where to have the best night out. Proximity to the town centre and relaxed atmosphere make this the best hostel in the Bay.

    Great location, terrific staff, bathrooms are older but very clean, can be merrily noisy in early hours of the morning but that's part of the experience :)
