Brendan is an excellent host and gives everyone a warm welcome and helpful advice upon arrival.
This is a good place for socialising, although there are designated areas and times for noise, so you can have your quiet time too. There were quite a few long term guests, so quite a community atmosphere.
Our private room was clean, bathrooms were fine, but maybe a little more privacy would be good - nowhere to get dressed after shower except for the cubicle or out in the general bathroom area.
Overall I would stay here again.
