Sehr sympathisches Hostel mit sehr nettem Personal und internationalen Gästen. Dazu gibt's sehr vielen Nischen zum Zurückziehen, aber auch eine Bar zum Zusammenkommen. Im gemischten Mehrbettzimmer war Platz genug.

A fine hostel, but lacking some decent bike storage facilities.

Reviewed on June 4, 2018

We were a party of 5 Mountain Bikers on a point to point trip of the Highlands. The one major facility lacking for us (and this is a comment which seems to apply generally to hostels such as this) was a solid, secure and fit for purpose bike storage area/building.

Great place, excellent staff

Reviewed on June 3, 2018

This hostel is well managed and the staff has great attention to customers’ needs. Clean rooms, dormers are quite during the night despite parties in the bar downstarir thanks to good insulation.
