This hostel disappointed us somewhat. We stayed there during a stormy night and our room was cold. I stayed there with my friend in a twin room, and when we asked for extra blankets we were given one TO SHARE as we were told this was all they had. The heating wouldn't work in the room, and the bedside lights weren't working either, which the owner tried to fix. The room was located close to the kitchen/breakfast room, so after a cold night of poor sleep,
we were woken very early the next morning by the staff preparing breakfast. Not only this but when I took a shower the next morning after 3 minutes in the shower the water went freezing. I came out with shampoo still in my hair to be told that it would take a while to heat up or else I could cross the yard to try a different shower. I waited ten minutes, freezing cold with wet hair, to eventually have a lukewarm shower. Not only this but the evening we stayed we walked into the town to get food. We were travelling via the Baz bus and therefore didn't have a car. The walk to and from the hostel was incredibly dark with no street lights on the street of the hostel, and we didn't feel safe at all on our walk. Overall incredibly disappointing.
