I was staying in a wood house. It is so clod in winter. When you stay long, there is no cleaning.
Forget about the breakfast, it is nothing. They say they give bread, but most of the time they do not wake up to put the bread available for people!!
I did not like the staff, the way to manage the car parking is a nightmare. They are even reluctant to give the code for the gate!! Each time you want to go in and out, you have to ask the tenant to open the gate.
I am runner so I run early morning before work. When I say i need to go out to run at 6h30, the owner/manager (?) replied:
I will not wake up just for you to run, run in the garden...
Ok do not do this job if you have this kind of way man.
Only one good thing, the small dog is very nice

Thank you for such a gracious review. We have to admit, we were so pleased when this guest arrived, without pre-booking, and, after inspecting the room, decided to stay with us. Imagine our delight when he extended by 4 nights the following day, making the total length of his stay 5 nights! Wonderful! To think he did this even though the room was so clod (sic). The comforter, blanket and heater in the room are so obviously insufficient, shame he never asked for an extra blanket which are always available.

We must also say that this guest was so polite, unselfish, sociable and considerate to both ourselves and our other guests, all of whom had lovely things to say about him.
He seemed to view our hostel as a 5 star hotel and that is of course such a compliment to us. Obviously, there are one or two things which as a 5 star hotel he seemed to think were a little below par but, we promise we will strive with every last breath to attain the goals he has so kindly set us. As a hostel we had been thinking that we should cater for the backpacking industry, but of course we should be thinking more of all those people who come here for work expecting their little luxuries they miss from home but not wanting to pay more than budget prices. We will see if we can find a solution, bread and water only for the staff every day will be considered and voted on.
To think we got up at 3am one morning to allow him to leave without even receiving a thank you and he still writes such a wonderful review. Single lane parking is so awful, and we understand it must be such a nightmare for our guests when so often we take their keys and move their cars for them in the evenings and the mornings so they can sleep. We can only get in about 12 cars so its not much trouble for us really but, for them - we are sure so many must have sleepless nights thinking about it and for this we can only apologise with all our hearts. We must also remember to give everyone the code for the gate which can only improve security in what is a relatively dangerous country. We will also be considering setting our alarm for 6am and maybe only getting 3 hours sleep every night to make sure those people who want to go jogging, walking or whatever can do so. After all, it is only one hour earlier than we get up now to put out the free bread and jams for toast (with the free tea/coffee available all day) which we do every day at the promised time of 7am. Of course, we would love to give everyone the choice of a fully cooked, buffet or continental breakfast but as a hostel we do have one or two small budgetary concerns - however, we promise we will review this and maybe put our prices up 50% to cover it. What a good idea, thank you so much. The only bad thing we can say is that sadly this guest had to leave us eventually, how we all wish he would return again to brighten up all our lives with his cheery spirit and thoughtfulness. Thanks again so much for the wonderful review which means all the more to us because it was written by such a special person.
