It was very accomodating!! The man was very nice he let me borrow a bike for free which was so helpful in getting around places if you don't have a car :)

You will need to be here in the summer months when we are full to get the best of the hostels atmosphere, winter we run with a few people, but like a disco at 4pm, no one around. Thanks for taking time to write a review, regards bryan

THANKYOU FOR TAKING TIME TO WRITE A REVIEW, and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Security is handled by out side contractors after 11.30, with at least 3 walk throughs and during the day I am here all day, I have a staff member in the front of the lodge and he also does a late walk through. I live at the back and have my windows open, and my wee dog wakes me if any noise at night, i have tried to keep away from cameras as they are a tad like big brother.

perfect location, nice sized rooms, very clean and well kept, the double mattress was a bit dated and a little uncomfortable but otherwise very good hostel

Thankyou for taking time to write a review, I found that bed base broken when making the bed, looks like prior to your arrival, hence it may not have been up to standard, problem solved a new bed base arrived last week and everything should be back to standard, regards bryan

This hostel is kept to a very high standard, very clean and has excellent facilities. Great kitchen, loads of DVDs etc. the staff were incredibly helpful and organised our tours. We got a good price as it was low season but you have to pay extra for a lot of things like lockers, wifi, linen etc. And they don't provide breakfast.

Great hostel. Large, well-equipped kitchen. Big common area with plenty of seating. Friendly, enthusiastic staff who are very knowledgeable about the local area. Also offer a discount with tours booked through their website.

Had a wonderful time, owners are super nice. Only problem was that I think they may have a bit of a tick problem.

interesting last part of your comment, no traces on sheets or nor have I seen anything, as today was the start #3 deep clean, under the bunks with tooth brush , all beds frames checked as with everything else, no trace of any unwanted visitors, however that job will be finished tomorrow, about 70% completed as I write this. I may turn up something tomorrow but at this stage nothing, and would be surprised if there is anything there.

Staff friendly and helpful. I stayed in a 4 bed dorm and it was really nice. Everything was super clean in room, bathroom and kitchen etc. Good facilities in kitchen e.g. filtered water and big hot water container so no need to wait for kettle to boil for your coffee. Nice atmosphere and big tv with lots of movies to choose from. Happy to keep my bag safe after checking out. No complaints (although more charging points in the dorm would be a bonus) and would definitely stay again.
