    Great conversation, staff were super friendly and helpful, a difficult time for travellers at the moment and it was great that everyone was chatting and helping each other out. Also loved the guinea pigs!

    Originally built as a hostel for workers on the hydro power scheme, it is of course a " tailor made" hostel for travelers. Good little hostel with real beds rather than bunks. Good kitchen and lounge area.

    Really nice not having a bunk bed for a change although the mattresses need updating as mine was sunken in the middle which did not make for a comfortable 2 nights. The animals are lovely and staff are very helpful. More down to the people than the actual hostel but nobody ever locked our dorm room which made me a little uneasy. Location fantastic. Didn’t use the kitchen myself but it looked fine from what I saw. If the mattresses were seen to I would definitely stay here again.

    Cute location. Beds were not great. I emailed the owners asking for a refund for the lack of sleep but never got a response. I did enjoy the bunnies in the yard though.
