It is v reasonably priced and has all that you would want or need from accommodation of this nature. However, i have a medical condition and wet the mattress. I could have kept quiet about the accident but told reception. I was then charged £95 for the mattress to be recleaned/replaced. I offered to clean it myself, move it to my new location in the hostel. To no avail. I will be pursuing this with management.

Thank you so much for your review. I’m glad you found our hostel to be good value for money; we strive to provide the best facilities and service for the best price possible. I’m very sorry to hear about your condition, you have my sympathies and I really appreciate your honesty and attempts to resolve the situation, it couldn’t have been easy or pleasant to deal with. As much as we value your honesty and cooperation, we have a duty to our other guests to provide a high standard of cleanliness in line with the health and safety regulations. As such, it would not be possible for us to allow for the mattress to be cleaned by anyone else but a professional using professional equipment and chemicals to ensure we meet the health and safety standards. Our mattresses are specifically designed for the hospitality industry, they are heavy duty and have a number of features to prevent things like bed bugs and mites. Our housekeeping team thoroughly inspect the mattresses, as well as all the linen between each guest use to ensure these features are not compromised for everyone’s health and well-being. Once again, I appreciate your coming forward and I hope I have your understanding. Best wishes - KA Management.
