Liked: Free meals, but the meals are provided at a bar in town, which pretty much every hostel in carnis provides

Disliked: They are only pick up between a certain time period, for example if it is after 8pm, they won't come to collect from the greyhound drop off. Despite them knowing that buses come in at the time. AND IT IS ONLY PICK UPS, NOT DROP OFFS. They calm great service, but don't provide, you might as well book a hostel in the centre for the same price.
