Incredible staff running the hotel! Only down side is many dogs at the hotel that also poo wherever they like so if you don’t like dogs it wouldn’t be nice. Overall incredible place though and we really enjoyed it!

We had such a warm welcome at this hostel. It's a laid back place, where you can have some space and chill-out time, but also you can get some great tips from others also staying. We ate in one night and had a really great meal. The owners had just come back after a couple of years away and were beginning to make changes/update rooms. There is a great bakery opposite (try the cinnamon rolls) and the supermarket is a couple of minutes away. The kitchen facilities are ample and lots of fridge space. There are also lots of great restaurants nearby.
