On arrival we were greeted nicely and given lots of information on the area and hostel. Rooms lovely and hostel very clean. Great facilities even a DVD player and tv. Hostel was great, a bit out of town but right next to the bus stop and 10min walk to the local shops. Our stay was lovely until our last day where a member of stuff repeatedly raised her voice and asked us I we were going to put or washed dishes away. We were will eating and had washed everything we had used but were just eating and relaxing before we put our things away. She when made a boy wash and put away things which he had not used and had a go at him when he questioned this. She was rude and irrational. We had been clean our whole stay and were planning to clear away afterwards, no one was waiting to use these implements or anything like that. She ruined our stay and frankly put me off recommending or coming back to this hostel. I can appreciate frustration over people not clearing up, I have cleaned hostel for accommodation before but her manner and the fact we had been clearing away makes her verbal attack totally uncalled for. On top of this it's not a particularly cheap hostel. This is a shame as all other staff were lovely, professional, and helpful
