    This hostel is all about the location. Nested below an amazing valley, the place has a wonderful view over the mountains. I would have loved a bit more thought on the facility’s of the place. But other than that everything was wonderful. The owners of the property are very friendly and helpful.

    Great location, just a little bit noisy at night. For one night stay, it was a good value for money.

    Fabulous hostel. Showers were a highlight just because they actually shot out water, not a dribble like elsewhere. Kitchen is quaint but useable. Space between top/bottom bunk was small, but the beds themselves were comfy. The location is perfect for whatever takes your fancy- fine dining or pub meal, night out or night in. Also very clean, no issues there.

    We were in another building which was like a dungeon. No windows. No personal lights so you had to wake everyone up if you needed something out of your locker. One of our lockers didn’t work at all & the other could be broken into by the most inept of thieves. Location, cleanliness & staff were excellent. We just wish we were in the ma8n building which had great dorms.

    Not a real bad experience overall, good location and facilities, was able to do my laundry and the rooms were nice enough. I had one good night in one room with no problems, came back another day and had a different room and woke up with bed bug bites! All over my upper body, not fun. Other than that it was a decent place
