We were at first impressed by this hostel; set in an old house with good parking. The kitchen was definitely a bit small and not well laid out - two cookers placed right next to each other to make it hard for people to share a cooker.
Unfortunately our stay was spoilt by noise from other guests. Several rooms shared a balcony on which people sat drinking until about 3am, only one metre from my bed. I feel that the other guests would not have bothered me had the area for drinking been slightly further away from where people were trying to sleep.
