This hostel is very colourful and the guys of the reception are easygoing and welcoming, but the rooms are very humid and you don't really get a feeling of hygiene. There is not air con and you are advised not to open the windows because of mosquitos. There are few tables in the dining room and the kitchen is not... More

There are for sale signs everywhere on the place but rest assured it is open. Bed was squeaky and more like a hammock. In room sink is nice? They couldn't be bothered to put the linen on the beds before hand. Kitchen was cramped and there wasn't a lot of fridge space or space to store dry goods. Their credit... More

I spent three nights there and made it clear that I would stay in a female only dorm room and under no circumstances in a mixed gender dorm room. I was told that was fine and I would be in a female only room. Then one night I go into the room to find a man is sharing the room... More

Pretty much everything you could want from a hostel - great location, friendly staff, quirky decor, pleasant common room, spacious room (we stayed in 4-bed private dorm), clean bathrooms. I like the fact that every shower is in a separate room, and there was even one with a bath! The room we got was much bigger than I've seen in... More

I spend two nights here and i liked this hostel. The staff was friendly and the room i stayed was big and comfortable. The bathrooms could use a bit of a makeover, and the kitchen could open until a little bit late. The surroundings are beautiful, and there are many walks and hikes to do . In the night i... More

I loved the atmosphere of the hostel, the bathtub (what a luxury!) and all the mural paintings. The people running the hostel are very friendly. The dorms are good. But when I stayed they put 2 extra beds in there and that was a bit too much. I didn't sleep well both nights I stayed there. But I loved hanging... More

Staff were friendly and helpful but the room and bedding was grubby (and our standards are pretty low.) This hostel lives in an old health centre so the nurse calls are still on the walls along with some quirky artwork. I don't get the rules though, so many of them; don't open windows, kitchen closed (and locked) at 10pm, rooms,... More

As there were three of us we were offered a four bed room (two bunk beds) which we booked on the basis that it would not be comfortable for a stranger to share with us. The cost of eighteen pounds per bed is not much less expensive than many b&b's, but at this hostel no breakfast is supplied. Tea and... More

Extremely nice laid back staff and free wifi. The building is a little bit run down but everything works fine, plenty of showers and a nice communal bbq area outside. Nice kitchen too and even a free food shelf!

Travelling around Scotland we stayed in a number of hostels and we thought this one was the nicest! Staff were very friendly, kitchen, rooms and facilities clean, beds are very comfy and there's a lovely lounge where you can relax. Yes it was a bit warm, so we took out the duvet and yes there were boys, but that's what... More
