I've stayed at the hostel a few times and on my last visit I noticed a lot of changes. The Hostel has new owners (but it is still a YHA) and they are making lots of improvements. Some of the equipment in the hostel was becoming quite worn and old but all of the old stuff has been replaced. There are new ovens in the self catering kitchen. A new TV set and pool table and the whole place has been redecorated! There is a free wifi service, you just have to ask for the password.
The main improvement though is outside. The building used to be painted white and it looked a bit shabby but the white paint has all been removed and the building now looks absolutely beautiful. I think the building was a textile mill and is probably a couple of hundred years old!
The staff all good and friendly, the food perfect after a long day walking and the Black sheep beer very refreshing!
