Outstanding YHA Hostel
The check in, check out was prompt, friendly and informative. The thermal underfloor heating in the bedroom was great to walk on after a cold winter's day! The kitchen was well-equipped, orderly, clean.

nice location for spa
Nice location, very convenient in city centre, the wifi is weak in the room and have to go to the lounge to find signal...a bit noisy but think about the price it's fair or even better for the facilities
