This was a wonderful hostel with great facilities (TV room, kitchen and dining area). The staff were really friendly and helpful. They also provided a lovely breakfast included in the price. The hostel is close to the supermarket, restaurants and pubs. It's right next to the port also. Really recommend it.

Jill and Dave were really helpful and went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. Awesome location - a few minutes walk from the ferry terminal with a great view over the bay. Definitely the best kitchen of any hostel I have ever stayed in!

However, it was absolutely fine for our needs, with an en-suite shower room and three beds. Each bed had it's own reading light, and there's a big shelf above the bunk... More

So many great things to say about our two-night stay at his hostel! 1) Kevin provided outstanding service, offering insight into the historic sites on the island, where to eat, and he followed-up daily to ensure our stay on the island was enjoyable!

My Friend and I received a warm welcome and Dave insured we had no unanswered questions. Great value on bicycle rental, a splendid and practical kitchen, warm dorm rooms and a 'family-like' living room all combined to make our stay perfect. Thanks and keep up the great work guys.
