Liked: Bright and clean, with excellent facilities. The kitchen and communal areas were spacious and felt more like staying in a B&B than a hostel. The hostel isn't in the city centre (about a 30 minute walk away) but in a quiet residential area which I preferred. We had a very warm welcome with lots of helpful information provided.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The main house is very nice, the staff were lovely

Disliked: The five bed dorm is in a separate tiny building in the backyard. The beds in it are very uncomfortable and there's no windows that open so it gets very hot. Not worth the money
