The hostel is placed very well within the town and the staf is extremely friendly and curteous. The atmosphere within is very inviting. The only thing that is a bit requiring to get used to is the smell of the wood the hostel building is built of. But even the façade of the manor house in which the hostel is located is amazing. There isn't anything to change. My stay here was great.

The kitchen was well equipped and in good order and that was much appreciated. We liked having an en suite. The washing machine was useful.

I found the matrass uncomfortable and had to change some around the bunks to get one that didn't give me a back pain. Other than that, a lovely place to say at in the grand Victorian style of building. Easy walk into the town centre.
