Quirky little hostel with a great atmosphere. If you are a bit of a musician and miss playing instruments, stop in here and have a strum of a guitar, ukelele and many others. Definitely a place I would go back to! More

Great arty hostel, really friendly people, a great town to go to, incredible local cliff top walk. Full of music lovers! Not bring musical myself I thought this would be a problem but was not. It was quiet at night and good facilities. Had to pay for wifi but good price and good service. More

Having timers on the wall plugs was a huge pain!! pretty much everyone these days needs to charge something overnight and i find it ridiculous and cheap that you would have such restrictions on this! we needed our phones for navigation and as cameras. More

The kitchen didn't feel the cleanest, but it was well equipped and big enough for multiple people to be cooking at once. Also, I left the hostel really early in the morning (it was still dark) and the main door had been left open. More
