By staying in this hostel you get a lovely holiday experience rather than just a place to stay.
The owners are incredibly friendly - Mattie gave us a guided local walk about local nature + history and a few stories - for free! He took us to places you wouldn't find on your own, even as an experienced traveller.
The kitchen was huge, bright and lean at all times. Cosy living room, good atmosphere. You feel you can talk to others if you like but are left alone if you wish so. Mix of people: young backpackers, retired couple, USA, Ireland, Europe - no problems in getting on. Living room sociable, bedrooms quiet.
We hade a private bedroom with bathroom, all fine for a hostel.
Lovely outdoors area. 2 great pubs 2 min walk with very good food and live music every day.
Beautiful surroundings. Hostel was very good value, food in pubs a bit pricey, but high quality. You could treat yourself to dinner sometimes and prepare other meals in well-equipped kitchen to save up.
Owners are genuine: they want to give people a good time, and are really helpful, not just interested in profit.
