    Double ensuite - very nice room with TV and great shower. The room was very clean, however the kitchen was a disaster. Most if not all hostels have policies regarding cleaning up after yourself, but some of the guests left a lot of mess and it was just left there. The pub linked to the site was great. Big open fires, TV screens to watch the rugby :) .... The food was good and cheap - get a discount menu if you are a guest.
