This hostel was easy to find nestled down between grassed banks it blends well with it's environment....I like how they work hard to be sympathetic with the environment.....good recycling systems in place...Great care seems to have been taken in all relations to it's location.. It is a relaxed friendly environment with good facilities for all ages to visit.. Our double room on the upper floor was lovely and warm, very comfortable bed and matress, our room had also a single bed in, but no other furniture , accept 6 coat hooks. The shower on the upper floor was not working, and when I mentioned it to the staff was informed it had been out of use for 1 week...Shame they didn't take my suggestion of putting a ''out of order'' notice on the door, there must have been a lot of water wasted as at least 8 people had tried to take a shower there. I think also they were remiss on our arrival of not informing us this showers was out of use..Staff were generally helpful when approached about other issues , all communal area where clean and comfortable to a high standard..The kitchen and dining room are closed for cleaning from 2.30pm to 4pm...which is reasonable. I would highly recommend this YHA but be sure to book well in advance.
