After reading all the good reviews I decided to book a room at the hostel.
When trying to enquire and book a place the person speaking to me was quite off hand about the dates and prices. When I asked was it ok to keep a dog in the car overnight the person became very aggravated saying ‘no no we don’t let dogs stay here’ and pretty much put the phone down. Well why don’t they make this clear on the website?
It is such a shame we couldn’t stay as I’m sure when you do it’s a great experience.
