Green rating



Stayed 5 nights. Warden hardly there. Room clean but bin not emptied nor in toilet area during stay.Small kitchen - 1 pan,1 fry pan 2 electric rings and a kettle that didn't boil! Kitchen a health and safety hazard. Clean tea towels daily but other clothes dirty. Electrics dangerous There is one 3 way socket for 2 fridges, a kettle and cooking rings so something has to be unplugged to plug something else in. It is a pity as this hostel has real possibilities. It is in a lovely area.

There is only two supermarkets on the village, but it is enough. Good offer and good prices, you can find almost everything you need.
