Very handy to all a backpacker needs. Rooms are tidy and clean although mine was a little small. Toilets, bathroom, kitchen etc all exceptionally clean. Some of the other guests complained there were to many rules, I did not find this to be true, all rules I found worked for the best possible stay of all guests. If you want...

The place seemed okay when we first arrived, but it soon became clear that the owner had no interest in people hanging in the common area of the hostel and made things pretty difficult for people staying there. There were alot of rules and plastered all over the walls. Most people were over for a festival and people weren't allowed...

WHAT IS UP WITH THIS GUYS MOOD The rooms are ok, clean and everything. So if your just looking for a place to spend a night it will do. My first impression was very good. The managers (Dave I think) mood is more unstable than a teenager girl. No doubt he hates his job and not keen to do anything...

I spent two nights in this hostel and everything was fab. Manager was very cheery and helpful upon checkin and reset the wifi for me when I told him it wasn't connecting, all worked fine after that. Rooms and bathrooms were kept clean and my female dorm had a balcony which was great for hanging out wet towels after a...

This is a wonderful hostel! Lovely staff, good atmosphere, great people! It's cute and cosy, very clean, comfortable beds, great weekly rates, free tea and coffee, very nice rooms, balconies and a living room. I love it and I would definitely stay there again if I could! The only thing I miss (compared to other hostels) is unlimited WiFi. But...

Great hostel, with the with staff you would like to see everywhere, free tea and coffee a small but cosy roof terrace and clean spacious rooms. If you are running a bit late as it was in my case you even receive a personal mail. Worthy of your time

Friendly staff. Lots of working backpackers living there so the evenings tended to be quite social. The hostel was clean and tidy and the accommodation comfortable. Would recommend staying here for a couple of nights.

I stayed for 3 nights and it is nice little hostel in a good location. Short walk from the bus station along the high street and easy to find. After reading reviews I was a bit apprehensive about staying here. But it has been taken over by a new owner and new staff who are all lovely and always around...
