    meant to stay only 1 night, ended up staying 5. The staff was so friendly, I even got invited to a lovely going away dinner in the hostel that the owner cooked from scratch for some of the volunteers. I genuinely felt like part of the family & would even consider going back to Volunteer there myself

    Lovely friendly staff and facilities and the location couldn’t get any better , very central, I would definitely stay here again! The only thing that I had a problem with and I felt uncomfortable about was that I was only half vaccinated and I was sharing a room with 2 men that just flew in from France , I would have thaught that they would have to quarantine for a few days on their own before sharing a room with others upon arrival?

    It's difficult to have an atmosphere while social distancing. The staff were very strict but friendly and accommodating at the same time. We intend to return when the Covid-19 situation blows over.

    Very disappointed to arrive at 6pm and be told our room wasn't ready, that there was someone else in there and they didn't know where that person was in order to get them to move their stuff. We left after it becamse apparent myself and my two children weren't going to be getting access to our room anytime soon, if at all.
