Sehr gemütlich und liebevoll geführt. Freundliche, hilfsbereite Mitarbeiter, gemütliches kleines Stuben Abteil mit Büchern, gut eingerichtete Küche. Ich habe mich sehr zuhause gefühlt.

L'auberge est bien située, quoique pas facile à trouver. Le personnel est absolument charmant et très serviable. Le petit déjeuner est complet et délicieux. les dortoirs sont propres et les sanitaires impeccables. Je recommande vivement.

Veramente un bellissimo ostello, vicino la Cleveland Way. Ottimo per percorre la famosa strada fino alle rovine della Rielvaux Abbey - bellissima -. I gestori sono veramente gentili e disponibilissimi. Le camere, i bagni e le doccie pulitissime. Niente schiamazzi notturni e ottima colazione (continentale e inglese). Consigliatissimo!
