Bunk beds for best friends and solo travellers

Our 6-8 people dorms are the perfect base to explore from.

You’ve seen the sights and partied with your fellow night owls, now it’s time to catch some zzzz’s. As The Fort in the centre of the action, a snooze and shower are never far away.

Don’t let our super low rates fool you. You’ll find cosy beds and home comforts in all our dorm rooms. Every bed comes with clean laundry, plug sockets, free WiFi and ear plugs. You also get access to all our shared facilities and chill out areas. Share and make friends for life. All from only £10!
