Liked: I stayed in the twin private room and it had plenty of space for both of us. The bathrooms and our room were very clean. The free breakfast wasn't much but it's a nice touch and did the job. You get one hour of internet free but you have to pay for additional time used. There was plenty of parking for my car, however there weren't many people staying at that time of year. The owners were very helpful with recommendations on what to do and see and what to stay away from.

Disliked: The bathrooms we're separated for guys and girls, but there were two stalls in each without curtains. So you basically and to dress and undress in the stall to avoid flashing anyone.

Liked: Got a dorm to myself as it was quite quiet, pretty nice place and good lounge and kitchen.

Disliked: Very strange shower set up- two showers, with frosted doors, in one bathroom with a sink so nowhere to keep your stuff or get dressed other than the shower cubicle itself or the shared area. Also pretty chilly in the rooms

Liked: Very clean. The staff went out of their way to help me. Wifi available if you pay. Comfy bed. Good communal facilities.

Disliked: It was very cold. Although there weren't many residents they put us in a room with another resident - it would have been as easy for them to give us separate rooms.

26 March 2013 Charlotte would recommend this property

Liked: Everything was very clean, and the bedrooms were nice and spacious. The kitchen was a good size, and there was a nice lounge area with a TV. The hostel was in a good location, a quiet area near the centre of town. Breakfast was simple but perfectly sufficient. The front desk stayed open much later than normal to accommodate our late arrival.

Disliked: The shower rooms were pretty awkward. There wasn't really anywhere to put your things, and there wasn't really anywhere other than the shower stall to get changed that wouldn't be easily visible if someone opened the door from the hallway.
