12 August 2011 Bjorn would recommend this property

Liked: Where to start? Free, huge fried breakfast is a good point. Also on the night I arrived the owner decided to make a free dinner for everyone as well (though this apparently isn't a regular thing). Also a couple of free glasses of whisky was a nice touch! Excellent advice on what to see/do as well from the owner.

Disliked: As there were renovations only a handful of showers were in use, but I managed to use one whenever I wanted. Also my bed broke on the second morning - the old, bent slats gave way and my mattress fell through.

Liked: The staff were really helpful - it was a nice surprise to find out that they cook your breakfast themselves, and they wash your clothes if you need them done (I found the latter a little bit strange, more because I like to do my washing myself).

Disliked: The breakfast room, which was meant to be able to contain all of the backpackers staying in the hostel at once, was incredibly cramped and could really only hold about 10 people at once, and not very comfortably.
