    This is my first post for a while. Can't give away too much but here goes...

    This youth hostel closed down a couple of years ago and is now faaaiiirly carefully locked up. Most of it seems to be exactly as it was left when the staff walked out, but some of it seems to have been turned over and left in a mess - mostly the outer lying rooms away from the communal living area. The hostel was opened by a notable dignitary in 1978 and has it's own Facebook page with two likes on it! It also features on well known ratings websites with a classy rating of just one star. Very sad indeed. Despite efforts to find someone who might be interested in resurrecting the building (student accommodation for example) no-one seems to want it - students are way too posh these days and want ensuites and everything.
