Liked: Overall a really nice homestay style place with a friendly owner. Good facilities and we LOVED the sauna! Tucked away from the main backpacker route which we didn't mind for a bit of peace and quiet, and would be perfect for those looking to enjoy the adventure activities in the area and come home to somewhere to relax in the evenings. Would definitely recommend having a car if you're planning to stay here.

Disliked: No plugs in the room that we could see, but that didn't really matter.

Delighted that you enjoyed your stay and the sauna.

I am sorry that you did not find the double socket in your room. I must remember to point it out as it is behind one of the beds in that room. All the bedrooms have at least one double socket and there are plenty throughout the hostel.

Liked: Beautiful location, grounds and building. Very good facilities provided, though would benefit from a laundry room for longer term guests and in bad weather. Run by friendly helpful people in a friendly area.

Disliked: Main road access dangerous for walkers especially in the dark for 2 miles from the village and station.

This sort of review is so disheartening.

The hostel is cleaned every day. The comment about cleanliness is not very specific so difficult to respond to.Unfortunately some guests are not as considerate as they could be and do not tidy up after themselves in the kitchen.
