Do not think you are booking a B&B when you book this place, and you will be fine.
Fine hostel, clean sheets on bed, private room with bathroom, soap and towels provided, even light bulbs in the bedside lamp. Great location to town centre. Car park was tight but really nice to have. Easy check in, friendly staff. Free Wi-Fi which works most of the place in the house(didn't work in room8). Snacks vending machine available -Great hostel!
But as a B&B... not too sure. B&B that is not a owner's house? Beds not properly made at B&B? No 'cooked breakfast' even you have to pay extra at B&B? They do have tea/coffee facility in room but...I don't think so.
Room8, Family room, was fine for 2 adults. One double bed and two single beds in the room so it is possible for 2adults and 2children to sleep. But nowhere to put your bags, I usually have loads more stuffs when I travel with child.
Also the room is not safe for children. Head board for bad is not attached to anywhere, just placed between bad and wall so they are wobbly and dangerous.
Bedside table is at the height of your face - I bumped my head in the corner of table(photo). Toiled seat not attached(photo). Shower water turn boiling hot to ice cold every 10 seconds. Room floor with lots of dusts and fluffs. Not big problem for adults, as you can be just 'careful', but for children?
My advice If you want to stay at this hostel is to book a family room for two of you. But this is not a place for children.
