    Very Good8.0
    Awesome place but some wrong information
    Place and rooms were good On website it says include breakfast in £6.75 but actually this place doesn't offer's a hostel and equipped with self catering kitchen. So take your stuff. Also no mobile reception at all. There is no wi-Fi so u r completely cut off from the world when u r in that place. U gotta drive 5 miles either way to get some kinda reception. All in all a beautiful and calm place to get busy life out of the routine

    Good hostel, great for mountain break.
    The hostel was ok. Although we booked a two person room it was small. The shape was the main issue, long and thin limited the useful floor space and made it a little awkward with bags and gear. The kitchen and dining areas were good. Slightly larger lounge would have been great. No wifi, which isnt a massive issue on an escape break but the area also has almost no signal, and YHA have been running a marketing campaign lately about how all their hostels now have free wifi!
