The best we have booked

Reviewed on September 24, 2017

It's the best hostel we have visit in our road trip in Scotland. It's better than more hotel 2 or 3 stars we have used. The bedroom is wide and the kitchen large, well equipped. They have give us some vegetables they grow behind and leave a word to ask us if we want some fish of the day. The atmospher is cosy, we enjoy our stay here and we would come back.
