Lonely Planet says:

'In a rambling 1770s Georgian townhouse, this wonderful independent hostel has a charming, cosy sitting room warmed by a glowing open fireplace, and a timber- and leadlight-panelled dining room. There's a decent self-catering kitchen and staff are ace.
An excellent notice board lists gigs and events around town as well as info about tours. The staff also chalk up the best cheap eats and places for a pint on a blackboard in the reception area'

Latest Review

" The hostel is in a prime location, but for the price, a continental breakfast would've been nice. The beds, while comfortable enough, shook quite a bit when either the top bunk or lower bunk shifted. The staff were very friendly and they have good laundry prices. I would come back. "
