I had a great stay here and can not recommend it any more highly. The volunteer staff were all lovely, there was an amazing atmosphere with the other guests, especially on the trivia and karaoke night arranged by the staff. Reviews mentioned loud people in the corridors at night and being very noisy. I did not experience that, and when we were arriving back late, we were all very quiet to not disturb anybody. Should maybe be an extra toilet for number of guests but it wasn't a big issue
