    The location of this hostel is ideal. Unfortunately nothing else was. It was dirty, loud, disorganised and staff were unhelpful. Due to system errors on their part I was moved twice, once without notice, so I came back late one night after a day out...More

    Hi, Hope someone can help? We have just booked a swim up family room but are confused as to how it is set up as the floor plan looks different to the gallery pictures. Is the sleeping arrangements a double bedroom then sofa beds in the living room or is it all one room?

    Hi Sophie. I think you may be directing your question the wrong way. We have no family rooms. Only double rooms with shared bathroom and dormitories for either 4, 6 or 8 people.
