Excellent service and friendly staff. Room equipment overall very good but could be improved in places, e.g. reading light for beds and clear rules about quiet times.

It is unfortunate that there are no facilities for recycling .rubbish in kitchen was amazing in a bad way. Laundry facilities limited.

You can't improve on perfection. I have stayed in a number of hostels and this is by far the best I have ever stayed in. Thank you for being there, it's in the best place for visiting other parts of the islands and just right for those of us who were there for Wool Week.
