Stayed in a 4 bed room (2 bunk beds) during a weekend's hiking trip. Very friendly, efficient and professional welcome from the host Wouter who was superb.
Location is perfect, near a trail head and 2 pubs serving good food (we found The Bridge hotel to be more popular, prob due to great menu and ales)
Breakfast was a good selection of cereals and home cooked English breakfast.
Showers and bathrooms pretty basic but they were clean and the water was hot. Duvets and pillows a big improvement on the scratchy blankets last time I stayed at a YHA (many moons ago).
Overall a super value, well appointed YHA with excellent staff.
