Location superb for walking, kayaking and cycling trips that we were doing! The staff Barbara and Joanne were so friendly and happy to answer all our questions. Room was a typical of a hostel, but en suite shower was good. No Mosquitos, just odd midge if you stood too still outside! Hostel had lots of communal areas so easy to find some space even though there were groups also staying at the hostel. The staff worked very hard to keep the kitchen and dining area clean and catering for ourselves was easy, though we also enjoyed the local restaurants!
