The concept of turning a old church into a hostel is cool, however it wasn't executed to it's full potential. You can fully hear through the walls of the rooms, and could use some more toilets. Overall, I was not very impressed with this hostel.

Stockbridge & Dean Village
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s

Hi there, We do have female only dorms, but the reservation in question was for a mixed dorm. This is clearly stated on the website. If they had requested a Female only room, this could have been avoided.
