Great facilities, though we stayed during the off season and only 2 bathrooms may be an issue if the hostel is full. Free parking and wifi, good location and friendly staff, though very much a part time operation and owners/staff were not on site and phone number is for owner's husband who is not able to answer queries directly.

Really lovely, comfortable place run by a couple. The man was away for our stay but Claire was really helpful and made us feel at home. It has all the facilities you need included, no need to worry about big extra costs, and a clean and cosy living spaspace for guests. Couldn't ask for more especially for the price.


This is a great hostel in a lovely town.

Perfect for somewhere more private. Thank you!


Nice place to stay, good location. We arrived one day earlier and it was no problem. The people gave us good walking advice :)


Very friendly staff, nice rooms and clean bathrooms. We only stayed for one night and we had a good time at castle hostel .


Everything was great but beds were a bit of a let down clean but not so comfortable but we would go back again
