Liked: Beautiful place to stay. Well equipped with everything you need - a kitchen, a lounge, a restaurant. The dorms aren't too big, and are pretty quiet. Out of the town, but not too far to walk.

Disliked: Wifi was expensive. The directions on the email are shocking, I suggest they both change them to be less vague, and you google map it before you go!

Liked: Spacious dorms, comfy beds with individual reading lamps, big buffet breakfast, nice area but out of the way.

Disliked: A mission and a half to get there! Luckily I was on my bike but feel sorry for any walkers with big backpacks. Towel hire £2 a bit steep, also the airport-like fee to use the internet - £1 for 10 minutes?? Too much
