We were a fair bit older than the usual hostel client (a pair of 50yr old cyclists) but we felt just as welcome as anyone. We paid slightly more for sole rights to a four bunk room with a good bathroom. Had to ask to hire a towel for the princely sum of £1. You have access to a good guests' kitchen and a cosy bar. Friendly staff (including the barman who kindly opened reception - usually closed 2-4, from memory - to check us in) and a nice atmosphere. One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in.
