    Thanks for your comments. We are hoping to have the bunks replaced within the next 12 months, to bring our standards into line with other YHA hostels. Unfortunately when we adjust the door closers on the current doors we contravene the fire safety regulations, but...More

    The accommodation is cosy and comfortable and the food is very good, well presented and filling for visitors on walking trips. Bedroom dormitories are small but very clean and adequate for families or school and college groups. Shower facilities are shared but adequate.

    Hello, thanks for your lovely comments. We've since been round and adjusted the door closers some more so they are a little quieter now, though in future we plan to replace the doors entirely. There's a chance we can do this over the next year...More
