Nice hostel and great view from the balcony. I was disappointed that the hot tub was temporarily out of order. I got free WiFi though, which was nice, as they used to charge for it. I liked the wood stove - it made the lounge nice and cosy. More

We stayed in a private double in winter. It was pretty cold but ok once in bed. There are lots of fires which are really nice to sit by. Probably really great in summer too. More
