    We stayed in an ensuite double room in the annexe and the facilities were very good and the atmosphere peaceful away from the bustle of the hostel. The staff were excelent and very helpful. The shuttle from the Baz Bus was well organized and an easy connection both ways. The Baz Bus driver phones the hostel when he is a certain distance away so fhere is only a short way at the transfer point. The hostel does not sell beer or wine and it is a bit of a walk into town to buy these.
