    A beautiful hostel with very friendly and helpful staff. The location is very remote but the Ilam Hall staff helps you find everything you need (transportation, toiletries, food, excursions, etc.)

    Stunning building and gorgeous location. We went during Shrovetide (accidentally) and all the staff we spoke to were really helpful and enthusiastic about it., giving us all the info we needed. Nice kitchen space if you need to cook, comfy beds, nice and warm all the time. Only qualm is there was no bathmat in the ensuite which meant the bathroom floor was always soaking. The wifi is The Cloud and doesn't work in the hostel rooms.
