    Had a great stay in Valley Hostel it's an old historic building. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm there is mould on the ceiling that is causing cracks in ceiling paint that would need maintenance.

    We booked Valley House really last minute to escape a night of camping in the rain! Our 6 bed dorm was decorated really nicely and the beds were big and comfortable. The staff were all super friendly and we stayed at the bar for food, drinks and music. Good Gluten Free options at the bar, could do with some options at breakfast too.
