I stayed two times in this hostel. One night while traveling up to Scotland and four nights when I came back. Very nice place. Unfortunately, when I got my home, I found two debits in my credit card, 17,79€ and 45,65€, that I never spent, in adition of payments of my room, of course. I claimed several times by mail, but it seems that the manager of the hostel is not interested in find out the truth. So, be very careful with your credit cars in this hostel. It could be better pay cash..
