“Good value for basic hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 January 2014

Very clean. perfect base for the night after a long day walking or cycling. Beds were made up on arrival, has lots of seating in dining room. Kitchen has all essentials for cooking. Only a minuets walk from the town which was handy.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 September 2013

The owner was at pain to point out that this establishment is a hostel not a B&B but as we needed a bed for the night, the price of £36 for 2 seemed OK. The rooms are basic bunk rooms with 7 or more beds in a room but can be rented as "private". The room was clean but not really well maintined (we had a wall light fitting hanging by it's wiring) the bathrooms seemed OK but certainly not sumptuous.

The owner doesn't live in the property so there is a phone number to ring if there's a fire (that's what the sign said).

Mostly rented out by cycling / rambling clubs who take a whole room / building for a night or two and it's aimed at such groups rather than couples etc.

I've stayed in better hostels but I've also stayed in worse.

Covered all the basics but there was no one to welcome us when we arrived, or at all during our stay, the key was in an envolope on the door, which was a bit odd. Also no free tea or coffee. The place was clean
