    Lovely cozy little hostel. Jake and Nikki made me feel right at home. Friendly staff. I was a big fan of the fire they light in the evenings!

    Jack the owner is very friendly and keen to provide you information on the area. Nice wood heater and view upstairs. The hotel is located right in front of a nice not too expensive bar with life music if you want to go out and meet the locals. Good wifi.

    The lighting in the dormitory was weak. Wook locker had a rotten smell. The 3 kitchens are very small to be cooking around for more than one person.

    Nice and homey hostel with three kitchen and lounge areas to relax in and meet other people, comfy beds and clean bathrooms. They let me leave my bag there the next day too. Would recommend :)

    Nothing bad to say!
