Its a nice hostel to stay at for travels and families aswell. You have a nice kitchen with enough space for everyone and can provide tourist information if you would like that. In the evening it’s quiet, but you can still hangout in the TV room or outside if you’d like to. The bathrooms are nice and clean. Would love to stay there again!

There was a complication at the hostel as it had to provide last minute accommodation for a school party. We were given upgraded rooms but no access to the kitchen which meant we couldn't boil a kettle, or cook. Also one of the ensuite showers didn't work and the other shower tray leaked.
