Kristian Adamson

17 March 2008 Kristian would recommend this property

Liked: Nice position overlooking the town. A small and friendly hostel with only a few rooms. Nice common room with open fire and bay windows looking out over the town and highlands.Note: This hostel has low security. The room doors do not lock, no key is required to get into the front door, and there are no lockers in the rooms. But this wasn't frightening for us because of the small number of guests.

Disliked: Kristian left no negative feedback.
