One of the best hostel I have ever stayed. Amazing common area, you can cook your food and chill in the couch with a cup of tea. Great vibes, the staff is friendly and really helpful. The hostel is cozy and it looks like you are at home. Poor wi-fi but not an big issue. Highly recommended!

Brilliant place and ideal for those exploring the island and beyond. Really clean, showers were great and the underfloor heating in the bathroom was a dream. Staff very friendly and helpful. I will be back. My only criticism - the driveway is very windy and it could benefit from some lighting for the winter months.
