"This hostel is in a great location and only a 10 minute walk to the seafront. We stayed in the cabin in the garden and it was great to wake up and step straight into the garden for a coffee."

05 August 2009 Alison would recommend this property

Liked: We enjoyed a private room but with the opportunity to mix with both families and students from different countries like Finland, Russia and Ireland. Everyone was very friendly to both me and my 15 year old son. The water was hot the shower rooms very very clean and there was also a basin in the room which I was not expecting. There didn't seem any restrictions on coming in and out. The location is very good as it is a few minutes walk from the main road for accomodation and was also near to the tennis club for us.The noise level was expected to quieten at a reasonable time and we certainly slept brilliantly!! We will definitely be back next year with some friends and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. The garden in good weather was great!

Liked: Had an absolutely lovely stay. Nice room, clean and brightly decorated. Kitchen with everything you need, dining room, TV room to chill in, really nice garden. The Manageress was really nice, very helpful. I have seen a previous post saying that she couldn't be found when needed, but this was not my experience. Would definitely recommend it.
