Liked: Located on main route, convinient access, relatively cheap

Disliked: Horrible smell of anti-pest detergents. Place is quite claustrophobic. Felt like in a concentration camp rather than Youth Hostel

Liked: a great base to work from for our white water rafting experience, staff were all friendly and helpful, would reccomend it to anyone

Disliked: Walls were very thin and when sharing with 3 others any movement was very noisy on the beds, not all visitors were quiet, even at 2 am and 6am so sleep not always great.

25 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Clean, big kitchen, soft beds, quiet and peacful. The commonroom was nice, and the dryingroom was superb!

Disliked: The kitchen got too hot if there were many people cooking at the same time, it would need more fridge space and frying pans. The pool table was broken, and it´d been positioned too close to the walls. Also, we didn´t see the sticks anywhere, and couldn´t be sure if it was free or not. It´s not really a youth hostel, too many families with little kids running around.

27 May 2010

Liked: I stayed here a couple of years ago and remembered it quite fondly, but on return I found it scruffy/grubby, the overall feel was chilly & uncared for, the location of our room opened directly onto the smokers corner of the pub and the cost was much more than it was worth. The SYHA hostel around the corner was MUCH better, despite the institutional atmosphere
