    Reese the owner was the sweetest most hospitable host. We hadn't planned our trip beforehand and he created the most stunning itinerary for us. I will definitely be back. It felt safe, everything was clean, good breakfast, and comfy beds!

    Cracking hostel. Couldn’t be better located - you can essentially roll out of bed to any of the local taverns, shops, supermarkets, medieval fortresses or beaches. Rhys, the owner, is a complete legend. Made our stay. Watch out for his super strength coffee though…

    Great stay, very welcoming host who made sure everyone was safe and had what they needed. Bed really comfy and good set up with seperate toilet, shower and sinks so you're not sharing 1 bathroom trying to get ready for the day. Close to cafes, restaurants and pubs. Plenty of cheap carparks nearby and free onscreen after a certain time round the corner. There isn't a full kitchen so you can't make dinner unless it's microwavable but breakfast is provided and there's a fridge to store things.

    It felt more like a boutique hotel than a hostel, which for the price, was incredible. Beautiful old (historic?) building just steps from the castle and market. The staff is extraordinarily friendly and warm. Made me feel really welcomed without being overbearing. Very comfortable beds & linens. Good bathrooms and showers. FAST WiFi, impeccably clean, free breakfast. I do wish there were a place to lock my stuff in the room and outlets closer to all beds, but overall, I really loved this place!

    Cozy atmosphere and generous owner! Great breakfast and memorable stay. A bit crowded and not the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed, but mostly because of the crowd. Also a bit high price for the value. In general warmly recomended and would return gladly!
