“Good deal, good location, hard to find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2008

We stayed in a double room with ensuite (50 euros). Note that the themed rooms are not actually themed inside - they're just titled eg. The Chimp Room.

Room - big for a hostel, lots of room for luggage, bathroom was small but clean, comfortable bed.

Breakfast - typical self-serve toast and cereal backpacker style breakfast. Reasonable for the price.

Facilities/atmosphere - has a big kitchen and common area for socialising.

Location - very close to town - everything needed was within walking distance of the hostel. Large Tesco close by.

Parking - limited on-premises parking available - cannot park elsewhere lest you be towed.
