We were extremely disappointed with this hostel. We have been on a fourteen day holiday around the West Coast and have been very satisfied with all the other hostels and would recommend all of them. Definitely would not this one - it was awful. The staff were not friendly or welcoming. The kitchen was disgusting...

Wunderbar einsam gelegenes Haus mit Anbau, entsprechenden Flair hat das Haus. Baden kann man direkt im Wye River vor dem Haus, allerdings hat der Fluss ziemlich Strömung! Auch Campen ist hier möglich, mit Benutzung der WC-Anlage und der Selbstversorgerküche. Wir waren mit 2 Kindern (11 und 12) hier. Abenteuerlich schmale Zufahrt mit dem Auto.
