The wanderers in is really not a comfortable hostel, but if you screw down your requirements to get a cheap place to stay this place is OK for you.
It was funny to read the article Cheap Sleeps by aah_stone as we had exactly the same room and the same problem, the radiator didn't turn of. It's quite a bit ago we've been there and it seems they didn't manage to fix it in nearly 2 years.
The breakfast is OK, sometimes there are cockroaches between the bagels, but after toasting them (the bagels ;)) it is alright hehe.
The rooms there, at least ours, was really cramped. So if you have more than a bag with you it might be hard! Also the bathrooms are kinda cramped.
Well we took it from the funny side, so we had no problem with it :D If you think it's nothing for you, find something else :)
Unique Quality: Pizza night at wednesday -> be sure to are quick so you get enough ;)
TV at the room!
good heating :))
Well, it isn't the most glamorous of places to stay. Nor is it all that clean, but it is perfectly adequate if you are not looking for anything special.
We had a room which had a radiator that wouldn't turn off, so we roasted slowly through the night. But hey the bed was comfy if a little rickety. The staff I dealt with were all friendly and eafer to help.
In short this is a good place to stay if you are on a tight budget.
I think another VT member may have mentioned the longer term residents smoking in their rooms/showerooms - it is true and a little annoying.
Unique Quality: Hostel provides a breakfast consisting of bagels and muffins.
An internet station is available.
Bed linen is included.
Wednesday evening a load of pizzaz are delivered to the common room for guests to eat. We missed out because we arrived at 11:30pm :(
