Couple who were running it were very friendly abd helpful. Rooms were nice and very clean throughout with good facilities in the kitchen. A lot of odd people staying who didn't say anything or acknowledge anyone they didn't know. Only 1 or 2 friendly guests.


Pretty dated hostel which felt a bit over priced compared to other hostels we've stayed in for the same money. Mattresses were super thin, the atmosphere was almost none existent and the location is quite far from the centre. The owner was nice and helpful though.
