10/10 Exceptional

This is one of the nicest hostels I have ever stayed in. We then switch to two nights in the adjacent B&B because we needed more nights abs it too was wonderful. Howard, the owner is friendly and extremely helpful. His staff is wonderful. Safety cleanliness and comfort we're all perfect and the gardens and patio are beautiful! Highly recommend to all travelers and I hope to return someday.
