Overall it was a great experience. Room and shared bathroom were clean. A bonus of a towel to use was excellent. The bed was comfortable and I slept well till 5.50am when I was woken up by a baby crying and crawling around the hall outside the room. Only to just get back to sleep when someone close by in another room started being sick. In general a good place to stay if you need cheap accommodation. The yha were not to blame for the people who woke me up... It was just unfortunate.
