Liked: Staff were all very friendly. I woke up right after the free morning bread was put away and the cleaning time for the kitchen was about to begin, but the lady asked me if I wanted the bread and brought it out for me. Also very helpful with the fishing rod and telling me where I can go fish.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Nice strong bunks that don't wiggle, spacious 10 bed dorm room. Lots of toilets/showers. Free towel. Quiet at night which was great.

Disliked: Mattress had indentation from all the bodies, no sign of free soup, tea bags or breakfast (which we weren't even told about!). Young guy on reception had pretty bad customer service skills.
