Security Door Saves This Place

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 22, 2004

superb communal lounge area overlooking High Street - a great place to chill and watch folk - and with kitchen adjacent - cheap brews of tea!!! Internet access there is good too.

Entry is off a side alley and is less than appealing - having to shout into an intercom to speak with reception. A bit off putting - but thank god it has security!!! (See Eastgate Hostel for comparison).

Once inside, you head upstairs to reception and the decor improves. So far so good.

Unique Quality: Ho, Ho, suffers - like many independent city hostels from lack of staff training, motivation and cleaning. Under investment meant that decorating and refurbishment took years and I don't know if it is now complete. Certainly check this out before booking.

Some rooms are fine - some grotty.

The location and style make it inevitable that this place is going to fill with Backpackers happy with all night sessions (in the pub, lounge or bed) and it serves them well.

If you want to meet people - this is a good bet. If you want clean, safe, more formal surroundings - head to the SYHA Hostel, further out of town.

Ho Ho had a good manager when I was there but she left - so it may be struggling - unless they are lucky to find another as good as her.

Directions: High Street - the most central of all the hostels.

Ho-ho hostel

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 22, 2003

I didn't know when I signed up that I was up for a rough night. I learned just the next morning that the hostel is located between a pub and a night club, and everybody that got out of there wanted the world to know they were drunk and happy. Sleeping on a clothesline and at Ho-ho hostle is just the same... Be warned. As for facilities, it is not too bad, the beds are comfy and all but they allow smoking in the dinning room which to me is totally disgusting. I didn't know that and I should have been more informed.

Unique Quality: Very near to the train station.

Directions: I would really sugges another hostel!!!
