Liked: It was extremely secure - there are no front keys to the door as the staff lets you in no matter what time of day it is. It's clean, nice showers, friendly atmosphere. The owner William was super helpful and cooked a free hot breakfast for everyone each morning. And one night when I wasn't feeling particularly well, he made me his cure-all hot whiskey and sat around chatting with a few of us. It's a good place.

Disliked: No complaints. It's a great hostel.

Liked: The free breakfast was great! Clean kitchen and William cooks the breakfast in front of everyone! We weren't given keys to the front door, for extra security front desk is open 24 hours and they open front door when you ring the bell so no one not staying can get entry!

Disliked: Walls very thin, can clearly hear normal conversations from next rooms.. Bathroom was tiny and the toilets seat was loose!
