Perfect hostel, we were just overnighting while on a road trip, so I can't speak to the location, but the rooms, bathrooms, self-catering, and common areas all were lovely.


It was perfect. best hostel in my life.


The Wayfarers Independent Hostel was great - recently decorated and furnished. The twin room with ensuite that we booked into was very nice, shower was great and radiators were warm. There are decent kitchen facilities, a drying room and a large, secure bike storage area (not that we had bikes). The owners/staff were very helpful and accommodating.


Great Hostel. Very Clean, modern and comfy rooms. Good Location and Friendly staff. Cheers.

The best hostel we've ever stayed in! Clean, comfortable and spacious. Well set up for cyclists with secure storage. Short walk from town centre and supermarket. Very well provisioned kitchen and good wifi.


Cosy hostel with friendly and helpful staff - everything seemed quite new and clean and in a good shape. Very central location, all though in a quiet and nice area. Could have had better common rooms and wifi.
