First time in a youth hostel as an adult (and since the 80s) was a surprisingly pleasant experience. A private twin room for myself and my 12 yo daughter was great, shared facilities not too much of an issue even though the place was busy.
Could do with more fridge space for guests, but ambient storage is plentiful, and the kitchen area and supplies ample for everyone.
Location is great: within easy walking distance of the bus station for the able-bodied even with a heavy suitcase in tow, 10 minutes walk from 3 supermarkets and multiple takeaway food outlets (all independant, no chains), and within 10 minutes to the town centre and major attractions.
Staff were available during advertised hours; friendly and efficient whenever encountered
