I really liked the open airy feeling of the hostel. The cleanliness was second to none and the staff were fantastic - one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The only down side was that there were a number of younger 'hostellers' who didn't seem to take others into consideration. It was evident that they'd been staying there for a while and seemed to be using it for long term accommodation. They were loud and had little regard for others when rising for work at 06:00.

We were really surprised about this place, it was one of our best visit during our trip, it really had its own character. However Cumberland it self is not very interesting, but its surrounding area are really beutiful.
