The hostel it's lovely but it's there is no free wi-fi.


Very good hostel in global: location, cleanliness, private bathroom, spacious rooms, brand new furniture, you'd say an hotel rather. Only little flaw the wifi not free but sold for a pretty expensive price.

Not convinced... the + + clean + ensuite the - - kitchen closed at lunch time (!) - no internet unless you pay £3 an hour - you have to leave the place between 10.30 and 14. - breakfast not included conclusion: if you want just some overnight stay, sleep, wake up in the morning and go for a walk all day, it is nice. If you want to rest after a hard day walk, sleep in and relax while checking your emails/fb, go somewhere else. Found a B&B for £1.5 more with all the comfort.




Absolutely nothing negative to say about this place; the staff were excellent, the facilities on offer were for a good price, it was a good distance from everywhere else in the town. In short, an awesome place.
