Jugendherberge im Black Valley ist etwas abgelegen, aber dafür in toller Gegend und sehr ruhig. Leute waren super nett, Selbstversorgerküche gut eingerichtet. Wir waren zu dritt unterwegs und haben sogar ein eigenes Zimmer für uns bekommen. in den Zimmern fehlte aber leider eine Möglichkeit seine Wertsachen wegschließen zu können. Wie schon erwähnt, hat uns das jetzt nicht betroffen, wenns aber voller gewesen wäre....Aber insgesamt ein toller Aufenthalt, wir würden jederzeit wieder hingehen.

Albergue situado en un enclave fantástico para realizar senderismo. Amplio, cómodo , con todo lo necesario, bueno, sería aconsejable poner colgadores para la ropa ( abrigos, toallas,....) tanto en los dormitorios como en los baños.

A unique and beautiful setting in spectacular countryside. The hostel staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities are clean and cosy with a log burner in the evening for those who need to relax in front of a fire/dry off after a day's walking. I would highly recommend this hostel. Gillian
