    Great location, super friendly staff, clean facilities, good food. Only down side was that there was no service before 0700. Which would have been fine had there been access to some hot water so that we could prepare a hot drink before heading off. We did feel that £87.00 for a twin room for one night was much too expensive for a youth hostel.

    Staff were very rude when we asked to leave our luggage on the morning of our check in - we were off to hike that day and assumed this wouldn't be a problem but upon arrival at 9am were refused entry to the building before our 'check-in time' because of covid regulation..?!? However later when we did check in, no one was using the one way system or social distancing so they were obviously just using covid as a result to be lazy hosts. Plus our private room was very dirty which is inexcusable.
