The hostel is nice, but far away from the next town and bus. It's not clear for everyone that you have to bring your own food (including breakfast!). The owner of the hostel didn't arrive on the first day. On the second day, he was there but only for maintenance and didn't enter the building. On the third (and last) day he came in just for 'collecting money'. I was there by public transport (to Kirriemuir and then by taxi). I had luck that there were two french guys with a car.
