Pete was lovely! Helped us plan our trip. There seemed to be a lot happening in the night but we had an early one to be up early. Rooms were warm. Walk to town was pleasant and not too long.

Terribly run down. Felt like a Squat rather than a Hostel. Dirty. Peeling paint. Large chunks of plaster missing. The building is pretty much inhabitable.
