Nice clean room. Didn't meet staff as I arrived late and left early. Was disappointed with the lack of respect for the quiet time hours. Was very noisy most of the night.

Hello, We are very sorry that we have had such a bad stay with us, we have many measures in place to keep the noise down after 10.30pm daily, I will look into the night report and the issues we had that night at our Hostel, again very sorry to hear. Enjoy the rest of your Travels

The room we had was perfect for just my partner and I and we had bathrooms literally next door which was so handy. Location isn't too far from town which was handy. One thing that was a possible let down was not enough parking spaces but we managed to find a park on the grass which was fine

Though modern the separate studio room was less than basic. Required a walk across an open area to access the main kitchen and lounge facilities. Works best as a hostel room not at motel price.
