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!

From the initial booking to the moment we left the staff were so friendly and welcoming. Our room was small, but we'd been warned about that in the booking. 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...
