Noisy at night
The room was facing the courtyard with sitting/smoking area, where people were gathering until early morning hours. I have asked reception team (3persons were at the desk) to look into the noise at 01:20. They apologised and said it will be looked into. It is after 2am, still noisy like outside pub. Is it hard to monitor area time after time as to keep noise levels down?

Disappointed
Upon 1st look of this Hostel, you would think it's really amazing, but when you actually check in you'll find it's not as good as it perceives to be. I was really taken back by the fact upon arrival and my room wasnt ready I was told that I would have to rent a locker at a cost of £6, I have never encountered this in any other hostel. The room I was given was more like a dungeon, yes it was ok, but it was in the basement with no windows. In The private bathroom for our room the toilet paper was not filled for the entire stay I was there. The dispenser was empty and there was 3 rolls just laying around the toilet. There were no hooks to place anything on in the bathroom so it was awkward to shower along with no shower curtain or anything to keep the water in just the shower area the whole bathroom area would get wet. In the morning I paid for the breakfast which was horrendous, nothing was warm, everything was cold except for the coffee. The bacon, eggs and beans were so cold and I feel they were sitting there for hours, even though I breakfast before 0730. Also the bread was stale.
