I was disappointed to find nobody there when I arrived, and to be tiol the warden was on Holiday even though I had booked to stay, I was lucky to locate the cleaner to tell me the door code so I could get in, it was very cold and no heating on, but there was hot water in the taps, next morning I tried to find who to pay but to no avail, so I left a cheque on the table with my booking slip, otherwise the hostel was very clean, and tidy and the beds were made and I enjoyed my stay

We really enjoyed our brief stay,the hostel is comfortable and homely and has every convenience. Beds are good,as are showers. The location is beautiful,rabbits abound. Can't think of a thing to improve the place - it's a delight.
