This YHA hostel as a castle deserved a very good review from myself. I went with 2 others for a few nights in order to walk, canoe and cycle around the surrounding area on budget. We were greeted by the hostel "duty manager", the friendliest person you will ever meet, only closly beating the breakfast server. The two of them would have done anything and everything for all guests and made everyone feel most welcome. If it's the great outdoors you're after, then this place is the perfect location for kayaking, caving, canoeing, mazes, walking, cycling, you name it. Everything is a stone's throw away. The hostel is basic, but adds to the mystical novelty of being in a Castle. Definitely making this an annual occurrence.
