This hostel is in a brilliant position for walkers, as previous entries mention. We were a party of forty and Glen, the warden, could not have been more friendly and helpful, particularly when an unexpected problem arose with one of our students. The rest of the staff were equally helpful, both before arrival with organisation, and during our stay. Personnel are much improved from a similar visit two years ago. The breakfast is very good, whilst the evening meals were a little more variable, but still good value for the price. Most of the bedrooms need a makeover, but clearly funds are tight. The shower rooms were fine by comparison, with plenty of hot water. Very efficient drying room. The two main rooms are very good, particularly with a large group. It would be sad if this hostel were to close.
