I found this hostel one of the least appealing I've ever stayed in. The building was very tired and desperately in need of some TLC. For the price, you would be better off spending a little bit more and finding a nice B&B or maybe even a pub.
Redeeming features are the remote, quiet and pretty location and the pleasant staff. Breakfast was very basic and very ordinary. We did buy dessert one night and it was delicious. But the plusses weren't enough to outweigh the negatives.
Overall I find that YHA is no longer value for money for couples wanting a private room and this hostel reinforced that impression. Thank goodness for the other travellers - still the best part of any hostel.
