Frequently Asked Questions:
What is a Hostel?
A hostel, ideally, provides cheap, clean and cheerful accommodation in a variety of rooms, from single, double and twin rooms to three, four, six and eight bed dormitory style rooms, with the idea that the larger the room is, the cheaper the bed. Once upon a time the typical guest was a single backpacker looking for the cheapest option, whereas nowadays you are as likely to encounter couples looking for a double room with ensuite facilities, and families looking to trim their budget so as to spend money on more important things!
Do I need bed linen?
No, all bed linen is provided, including bed sheets, pillows and duvets. Towels are provided for private rooms, and may also be hired from reception.
Free wi-fi is available, and free internet. If you need tickets or boarding passes printed, we are happy to do so free of charge.
