    Had a great stay here. Facilities were top notch and free wifi that was reliable. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and tidy. Not a party hostel and clientele is more 'family' and less student etc. Would definitely recommend!

    We loved this place! So conveniently located in a cute little town. Nice rooms, good facilities. Only drawback was the loud school groups during mealtimes/in the common room- just avoid going during school holidays. 10/10 would recommend!
