Do you have parking?

Yes!  We take group bookings for groups of friends, schools, universities and corporate bookings, please get in touch for details! 
(We do not accommodate stag and hen parties).

Can I bring my own food and drinks into the hostel?

Yes, of course. We have a fully equipped kitchen that is available for guests to use and a fridge to store any food or drinks in, although please don't take your 3am takeaway into your bedroom (no one likes the smell of 12 hour old chips and cheese in the morning). For health and safety and out of a duty of care for other guests we do not allow alcohol in the bedrooms.
