We enjoyed our stay so much we didn't want to leave! The staff were really friendly and helpful. We stayed two nights and we were starting to feel at home. The kitchen and living-room were warm and welcoming. We could stay as long as we wanted to on the second day as we are travelling by motorbike and there were warnings of gales.

Thank you very much for your lovely comments. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us. Kindest Regards, Maureen.


Perfect location. Parts of the overall building are very old which means you hear noise from water pipes, etc. Also, as with most hostels, once other guests are up and going about their business then the amount of noise means you'll be awoken. I was genuinely impressed by the level of cleanliness, the entire place was immaculate. Overall, I was very happy with the accommodation and would definitely return.
