Welcome to our hostel

You can relax in a comfortable lounge, or keep in contact with friends and family with Internet access. WI-FI access is also available and sheets are included in the price.

I'I regret that I payed before seeing the room because the hostle is dirty and the room stinks so much that we couldn't stay. The staff was prepared to change sheet (there was blood and other dirt on it) but couldn't do anything with smell. Also earplugs available at the reception indicates that this hostle is not for peaceful sleep. I requested all refund but was refused.

Die wichtigen Dinge waren vorhanden/haben funktioniert. Heißes Wasser, ausreichend Duschen und Toiletten, kuscheliges Bett, Zugang zu den Zimmern, Frühstück. Die stickige Luft auf den Gängen ist wohl den Feuerschutztüren und der Tatsache geschuldet, dass es nicht so einfach zu sein scheint, zu lüften. Hervorzuheben ist, dass man beim Zubereiten des am Abend vorbestellten Full scottish Breakfeast zuschauen kann, aus der Pfanne auf den Teller. Freundliche Mitarbeiter.

The staff were lovely; they went out of their way to help us with a booking late in our holiday. This was a good start to our week in Scotland. The only negative was the continental breakfast. You did feel that you were less well catered for than if you chose the cooked breakfast. No bread on the second day!
