It was a good place to stay a week. It was quite empty, so the days and evenings were quiet.


Great place right in middle of town owner is fantastic will help you as much as he can Give you tips to fill in your day and tell you of free stuff to take advantage of Free wifi which is brilliant


Dave's Hostel is very friendly and homely ! It's much more than just coffee & tee and wifi for free. You get a free hair dryer, hair straighter, hot water bottles and other food for free.. When you looking for a "partyhostel" and want to meet other people, it's the wrong one but when you want something homely & quiet its the right! Thank you for the stay Dave! :-)


Very very friendly and helpful staff, clean facilities and a great atmosphere!

Very clean and comfortable hostel. Dave (who runs it) was exceedingly friendly and helpful; 100%!


All good but part of the floor makes noise when you step on it.
