    Cosy and welcoming hostel with an excellent kitchen and a large communal space. Staff are very friendly and ready to give advice about trips and walks. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. Beds were comfy and proper duvets provided. Towels were also provided on request. Would happily stay here again

    Staff were very friendly and welcoming, offering fantastic travel tips for our visit (and future trips)! Clean and well-kept with plenty of space in the kitchen and common areas to socialize and relax. Our room was a bit chilly on arrival due to a malfunctioning window latch, but warmed up in no time with the overhead heater. Lots of parking available during our off-season visit!

    Good, well run hostel in a lovely location. I actually got updated to a private room so I’m not sure what the dorms are like, but it had a really good lounge area and kitchen, and I met some great people there. Staff are very helpful on suggestions for stuff to do and you also get 10% discount on some things for staying at YHA :)

    We arrived at 8pm to a completely locked hostel, we called the number on the door to be told we should have received an email with the door code and instruction (still haven’t received this email). The guy on the other end of the phone finally gave us the code to get in the front door. The room was clean but the heater is located above on of the bunk beds, making it extremely hot for the person in that bunk. 1 female shower for a lot of people! Especially annoying when you have an early start.
