OK. This place is battered, just accept that and enjoy the stay. The staff are brilliant. The location is wonderful if you enjoy walking. Its about 150m to the good pub (Brittania) which is a one pub beer festival. Kitchen is a bit tight but that's normal. Wash rooms impeccably clean despite being heavily used.
No car park at the hostel but there is one about 150m away that is operated by the National Trust. It's free if your an NT member and if you are not, why not?
