We stayed in the hostel for 1 night. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Hostel was clean and very comfortable. The hostel was very quiet at night. I would definately stay again and highly recommend.

Nice hostel, a wee way from town but very close to a train station to get into the centre city. The manager is what makes this hostel lovely. He offered far more hospitality than expected of a hostel.
