We arrived late on the Greyhound (0045) and had been informed on booking the gate would be unlocked - it wasn't. Fortunately a friendly resident let us in. On booking we were given instructions on where to find the key (walk past the ping pong table then look in the knitted clowns pocket for the key), which to this day still makes me laugh - a random knitted clown!!!! The room was ok as was the shower/bathroom however if occupied you have to venture outside for the next nearest. More showers and toilets are needed in this place. The kitchen was clean and tidy but could be a little bigger with more utensils and an oven!!!! Overall it was a nice quiet place with friendly stafff and a friendly atmosphere. There are numerous discounts on local activities too.
