    Our stay was amazing to the point where we regretted only having stayed for one night. Would wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone walking the Fife Coastal Path and looking for a place to stay. Great value and nice restaurants/cafes within walking distance.

    Stayed at Murray Library for one night and wish we had more - this was a very cool hostel full of charm and character. The building is historical the facilities are new, modern and very clean. The owners were super friendly and made great recommendations for activities and eating in the area. It is right across the street from the water so their are plenty of beautiful views just outside the window. Probably the nicest hostel I have stayed in!

    Very nice small hostel, plenty of space, right on the sea front. Opened just last year. Just had 2 small problems - the sat nav took us to the wrong Shore Street (further down the road in the next village) and the key to the room was very hard to turn in the lock. There is a bakery 2 doors away which was great for breakfast and the uk best chip shop (apparently) close by. Bus stop opposite, if needed. St Andrews only 15 mins drive.
