It's a hostel with a number of single rooms. Breakfast is excellent value (ask for the yoghurt if it's not visible) and includes cereals, juice, crumpets and scones, as well as a good variety of spreads (both Marmite & Vegemite!). The single room I had was very small with no space to put stuff, and nowhere to sit apart from on the bed, but there's a common lounge and kitchen area downstairs, with a communal dining table, and seats in the garden too. It's a bit short on toilets for the number of residents but otherwise is perfectly acceptable.
The location is convenient about 15 minutes walk from the centre of Canterbury or 25 minutes from the railway station. There are plenty of pubs and shops within easy walking distance. There are two car parking space at the front, but free on-street parking nearby. If you have a cycle the parked cars usually block the cycle rack, but they'll let you carry your bike through to the back where it's quite secure.
It's not suitable for wheelchair users due to a small flight of steps to get to the front door.
Rooms at the front are single glazed so suffer from some traffic noise (but it's quiet road) on the 25 bus route.More
