I stayed in a dorm. I arrived in the morning but was allowed in the dorm. The cleaner was finishing. I was unwell and went to bed. A male member of staff came in at 2pm when I was in bed sleeping to check everything and tidy round the dorm. I felt very uncomfortable.

I had a wonderful stay, the staff was helpful and the place was very clean. I couldn't figure out how to get the lights on in the shower, so I always carefully laid my shampoo and towel out before showering in the dark. you could make the information about the cafe next door at the community center more obvious, it was nice to have a hot breakfast some mornings there.
