It is my first time in a YHA so have no point of reference. My stay in this hostel was brilliant. Friendly helpful staff members on reception took care of all my questions. Was not expecting much after reading some of the reviews. But this...More

Lovely hostel, made a mistake with my booking and they were very accomodating with chanying. Great self service kitchen. A little bit out of the way (2.5 miles from town) but easy enough to get taxis or the bus.
