Delicious breakfast and dinner provided. Comfortable enough but it was a very quiet - I think there were only a few people staying in the hostel when I was there. Would stay again though

Amazing guy that runs the place who’s really friendly and helpful. Free breakfast and then soup in the evening which is a nice touch. We got stuck inside due to rain but there is plenty to keep occupied: hot tub, pool table, darts, tv, board games etc
