Ideal location but staff sit about chatting all day and watching tv with volume loud either on tv or on pc screens almost treating it like a front room. Toilets are squat type that smell through to your dorms. Having said that you can rent decent mountain bikes cheaply but on the whole cheap but expect nothing more.
