The fact that there were no sheets on the bed really annoyed me. They add some bit of cleanliness, since you can wash them whenever there are new people. Also, the bathroom was a bit too dirty.


Warm, clean and comfy rooms. Great location and a great base for our climbing weekend.

This hostel was a really nice place to stay, because it was small and cosy but still you had everything you needed. I would suggest going here if you want to stay within a beautiful evironment and do some outdoor activities.

Thanks Your review is very welcome and keeps us on track to provide clean and comfortable accommodation. Alan & Sue Owners


Very old equipment, not very clean and not good for couples. The shower is a catastrophe. We actually planned to stay for two nights, but left as soon as possible when we saw the inventory.

Strange one this for us. We frankly do not understand or accept that we have very old equipment, which is not very clean. Anyone reading this review should also look at the % marks historically, for our facilities and cleanliness, which speak for them selves and we aim to keep them that way. Hopefully one very poor review will not put off other folk from staying. Alan & Sue (owners)


very quiet location, if you snore a bit at night it is very likely you are disturbing your roommates. The last person in the 4th dorm gets the upper bunk - it's hard to get in, it is also close to the ceiling. Not saying that it is a complaint though! Pretty near the amazing cow hill circuit, just go to the main road and exit town by walking left. Would been perfect experience if the owners gave me a full tour at arrival, just discovered the bouldering wall shared space/hikers/drying room late
