We stayed at Bards Den for two nights on Easter Weekend. Knowing that this is a hostel, we weren't expecting much for it. We went there to climb Diamond Hill and the hostel's location was perfect for that, as it was only 5mins walk to the national park. The rooms are very basic, the furniture is not the nicest but we thought the beds were comfortable. It also had a TV (with 3 channels) which was great as we weren't expecting to have a TV in the room at all. The room had a nice view to the mountains. The bathroom was really small and old, but it had an electric shower so there was always hot water.
There is a kitchen which guests can use with all the cutlery and utensils you need for cooking. Breakfast was included and consisted of bread, cereals, milk, tea, coffee, honey, jam, butter, and things like that.
The owners of the hostel have a restaurant/pub next door, we went there for dinner and the food is good. There's also a supermarket across the road.
Overall the place was ok for a short stay, it was close to the park and there was a supemarket nearby. The rooms are not the nicest, but it's the cheapest in the area.
