I met the hostel owners, very friendly. The hostel was very clean. Superb location. We couldn't access the bike shed; don't know why, There was no service, the hostel is unmanned. I don't expect service.Very comfortable, and adequately green. My only gripe is that there was a camper there, same time as me. I've no issue with the camper; he was a fine, chatty person. He accessed, or could access all hostel facilities, except a bunk for what I was told was a very modest fee, about a fifth of a bed night fee. I understand that the amount of fee is nothing to do with me but it wasn't fair.

The bike shed is the open fronted shed to the rear of the building and has 2 locking stands. Really interested in the comment about the camper. It's a very rare occurrence for us to have one and yes, he did take us a bit for a ride. He asked to camp one night, and I felt sorry for him when he asked if he could use the facilities inside; the price was off the top of my head. I'd no idea he was staying the third night and would have asked him to stay outside as I don't think it's fair mixing campers and guests either. Pity you mark us down so heavily though.
