Close to the city, a great relaxed atmosphere - and it has a swimming pool!
This is a very big and busy hostel - great if you want to be social, or if you're in a group. Very central. Felt a little unclean at times, and there was nowhere to lock up personal belongings in the room, which you would expect in such a huge place. Still, it was all right over all.
A fantastic place to stay. Owners are friendly and helpful, offering suggestions for things to do; rooms comfortable and quiet, and very clean - an en suite; breakfast is delicious, and there are several options from continental buffet to a cooked Scotch breakfast. Brilliant value for money, only 5 minutes from the centre of town in a quiet area. I stayed for four nights, first with a friend and then by myself, and would definitely stay again.
This was a really nice hostel to arrive at after a long day of travel - really friendly and lovely staff, a comfortable warm bed with an en suite on the girl's dorm, a peat fire in the lounge, free breakfast (you really come to appreciate that), and a general welcoming, homely feeling. It's also close to the bus terminal and ferry, and plenty of places to eat.
Free wifi and plenty of showers, but the shared spaces (esp kitchen) were a little unclean. Does the job though.
A great stay, nice environment. Only issue was with the queue for toilets/showers in the morning, and the hand towel size of the towels (though they were free). Thanks for the stay.
