Pros: The staff made all my children feel welcome. The place was full of character.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: I liked all the folks from other countries willing to visit and speaking in their own languages. I liked the pool table and ping pong table, and garden vegetables available for guests. I liked staying in a rock building of historic significance.
Cons: I had nowhere to store our food, so the cat got some, and other guests partook of some. I didn't see any comfortable furniture to sit in, although there were parts of the building I missed. I shudder to think of the breakfast or dinner kitchen atmosphere if there was a full house. AND, I haven't stayed in hostels for a long time.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Easy to find
Cons: The place was not clean. Spiderweb all in the room. The head of the bed was loose. Any movement in the building echoed. There was a group of people who stayed up into the early hours of the morning playing music and being extremely loud. There is no curfew here. Children running up and down the halls screaming pass midnight. Really annoyed to pay a price to stay and be awake all night. Would never stay again. Avoid!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The friendliness of the staff. They were very helpful with everything. The kitchen very well stocked.
Cons: The internet connection was intermittent.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Really accommodating staff, nice laid-back homely atmosphere. Interesting to talk with other guests
Cons: I think it would be great if there were lockers and that's pretty much it.
