Stayed there the weekend of 18-20 January 2013 for my birthday with a group of 22 friends. An absolutely excellent hostel. The rooms were great and all bar one is en suite, and that one has a bathroom next door. Location was great - just off the main road - so ideal if weather is a bit inclement. Loved the fact that the dining kitchen and the common room are both big enough for everyone staying in the hut to congregate so the group doesn't HAVE to split up. Best of all though was the service from Dave and Sally who run the hostel. They were helpful and accommodating right from the start - even booked our meal at the Travellers Rest down the road on the Saturday night for us. Would definitely return and recommend it to all my friends.
