We booked an en-suite double room as a treat for our first anniversary. We had considered some of the more 'upmarket' hotels but decided to look for something a bit more simple and less expensive. This looked like a nice place with good reviews for a more simple stay. I'm so glad we went with this! The room we got was amazing - large spacious room, tremendous sea view, simple but sturdy and quality furnishings (carpet was on it's way out but who cares!), sofa, simple wee bathroom. Only thing missing from a B&B or more traditional "guest house" was tea and coffee making facilities, but this is a hostel / guest house and there is a communal kitchen downstairs where you can get a cuppa if you want. Also in the kitchen is breads, jams, eggs, yoghurts, teas, coffees, milks, amongst other stuff that you can help yourself to and pay a small fee into an honesty jar for what you have. The lady that seemed to run it was a very friendly and helpful woman, down to earth. The bar underneath was a good atmosphere - there was excellent live music the night we were there and the place was busy. We obviously stayed in one of the more expensive rooms, so I can't comment on bunk rooms or the shared bathrooms, but if they are anywhere near the quality of what we got (certainly above what we expected) for our money, you're laughing. We'll definitely go back. One more thing - very handy location. Not too central, but central enough.
