I had a lovely room but it was a bit hard to enjoy due to another guest who slept quite a lot in the bunk above me. It seemed every time I went to the room she was in bed and being polite, myself and the others sharing didn't disturb her. This is all part of the normal YHA experience though sharing space with others and working around it. These things happen! :-) The rest of the building and services were wonderful.

Very informative and helpful staff. The only negative is the walking distance from transport connections of 25 minutes - maybe I will use a taxi next time! However, the directions given by YHA Penzance were precise and enabled me to get there without recourse to my GPS app.

Dieses nette kleine Hostel liegt in den Borders, direkt an der Grenze zwischen Schottland und Northumberland. Die Landschaft ist herrlich zum Wandern (St. Cuthberts Way und Pennine Way) und Motorrad- oder Fahrradfahren. Es ist sehr ruhig dort und man ist gleich in der Natur. Viele Mitarbeiter arbeiten ehrenamtlich und auf Anfragen antwortet der Host umgehend. Alle sind sehr nett. Für Nicht-Selbstversorger kann im nahegelegenen Borders Hotel gegessen werden
