We stayed in a family room, with bunks (two bunks of three, which was a little claustrophobic). There was a good kitchen and lounge, a bar and restaurant, and very friendly staff. The room was ensuite but the shower was rubbish - it basically sprayed...More

Dear ShroppieSaint, I can only guess you stayed in a room with the old beds we have just had these replaced with a two level bunk bed now and more modern metal and comfy ones with there own USB and socket attached. We do have...More

Last time I stayed at a YHA place I think I was in my 20s cycling round West Highlands of Scotland. 30 years on and we came down to visit our daughter and thought we'd give YHA a try. Well - what have we missed..?...More

Dear Camtownsend91, I see you stayed in one of our newly installed beds each with their own USB and Plug sockets attached to them. Our breakfast is only £5.75 for a full English and Continental which includes Coffee, Tea and fruit juices. The fan in...More

我住在一個12人的臥室,兩間廁所和兩個淋浴室。這是適當的。但是房間被過度分配,當我晚上回來晚了,我的床(我已經用我的包佔用)拍攝!我不得不下來去接待處與一些我的衣服,要求在另一個房間一張床。這是不是一個非常好的經驗。 I stayed in a 12-person bedroom with two toilets and two shower rooms. It was adequate. But the room was overallocated, and when I came back late in the evening, my bed (which I have occupied it with my bags) was taken! I have...More

I booked about 2 months in advance. I've booked other YHA hostels up to 6 months in advance. If you can't find anything online, it's always worth phoning the hostel as they seem to keep some rooms back from the online... More
