Stayed 1 night in February 2020

Exceptional”

I stayed here after seeing a comedian in town. It was a bargain at just under £12 for a night and very Close to town and the train station. The bed was comfy, but the only downside were the strangers I had to share the room with. I got in at 10pm, so not that late and one guy was snoring really loud. This went on for hours, so I couldn't get to sleep. Then at 2am, 2 new people arrived and had a full blown conversation with each other, out loud. They didn't seem to care that others were asleep or trying to sleep. I can just about put up with snoring for one night, but hate rude, ignorant people. I was tempted to tell them to shut up, but didn't want the hassle. I will stay again, but hope for better room mates.
