    My friend and I just stayed for one night at Finlay Jacks but I wish we stayed longer to enjoy all the facilities - garden, cool TV room, big kitchen with balcony. We had so much space for all our stuff in our 8 bed dormitory, and really enjoyed having a real bathroom - that felt like home. I recommend it to anyone and will definitely come back!
