So I hopped off the bus and was greeted by one of the guys from the hostel who took me there in the bus even though it wouldn't be that far to walk. I checked in and met Peter who was very friendly and told me about the quiz they do in the evenings to win a free bottle of champagne. None of the rooms have more than 4 people in which is nice and the rooms were nice although under the beds wasn't cleaned very well. The kitchen was nice and clean although it was a bit on the small side I thought if there were a lot of people wanting to cook at the same time, not that this was a problem for me. It is about a 5 minute walk to town which I liked as it means you are away from the night life (I'm not a party person) but it's easy to get into town as well. Overall a great place to stay :)
