Reviewed 7 December 2010

Stayed here with a mixed group.

We had travelled to ski so needed somewhere cheap and functional. The hostel was both.

The room was clean, the beds were made ( a bonus when we arrived v. late) and it was warm.

Downsides: the bunkbeds squeak (they are metal) if you roll over in the night (noisy in a 6 bedded dorm), there are no personal bedside lights and they shut the kitchen at 11pm so I couldn't fill my hot water bottle after our expedition to the pub.

Continental breakfast was pricey at £4 per head but got us out the door quickly and onto the slopes.

oh and the skiing was awesome!

Reviewed 18 August 2010

The youth hostel is an official SYHA property and about 500 yards from the train station, next to the Catholic church. We booked a private room as travelling as a couple - this was a quad family room which was four bunk beds, wardrobe and sink. There are no en suite rooms at this particular hostel but several toilets and showers a few steps away from every room. Linen and towels provided if you book a room to yourselves. The place was spotless, cleaned every day and strict on leaving muddy boots at the front door. The setting is lovely, lots of rabbits running about the grounds, picnic tables and benches outside and a big car park for drivers. The kitchen and dining facilities were again spotless with lots of room, lots of hobs and sinks, microwaves, hot water boilers and all the pots pans and cutlery you would need. There's a Tesco about 10 mins walk away up the main street for your provisions. You can also pay for a breakfast there for about £5. Very family friendly so would recommend for families or a group. Can be noisy at night with so many people around so take ear plugs!
