Very warm welcome received. Room and facilities extremely clean. Located 2 mins from the beach front. Permit parking around hotel but the hotel provide a permit when checking in. Would definitely return, kitchen facilities very handy.
I stayed for one night in December 2014 as my folks have bought a cottage but due to unforeseen circumstances it didn't have a roof when I visited.
I rang to see if they had a bed about 10 minutes before showing up and the lovely volunteer chap that runs the place couldn't have been more helpful. He was friendly, happy and seemed to genuinely want to make sure i enjoyed my stay.
The kitchen was spotless and had everything you need, a huge unexpected plus was free tea/coffee in the morning; there was a dining and lounge area, although I didn't spend any time in them.
I stayed in the 3 bed female dorm with 2 other girls for £16 for the night, can't really go wrong for the price. There was hot running water, comfortable beds and the heating was on full.
If all you need is a place to rest you head I'd highly recommend it's a short walk to the seafront and they have lockers you can dump your bag in too.
The location of the hostel is very good, shops and restaurants are not far. There is a big lounge available on the ground floor and a good equipped kitchen with oven is also available. On road parking is available but you need to book it before you go there by sending them a mail.
Finding the hostel is little bit difficult. Rooms are very clean and equipped with a steel cupboard.
Stuffs are very friendly and on the next day showed us all the places to visit. It was a nice stay..
The hostel ismax a 10 min walk from the train station and also from the Main street and sea front. when we arrived and the room wasn't ready we were able to leave our luggage in a locker and took the key with us. The hotels is really nice, nice room (we had the double room), clean bathroom, sitting area and clean modern kitchen. Our double room was like in a hotel with towels included. It was also quiet at night.
The one negative thing that will probably prevent me from staying there again is the way the owner "kicked" us out in the morning. There is a sign in the room saying check out is before 1030am. That's quite early but we gave ourselves 1 hr to get ready with showering etc. Now the reason we were delayed was the shower. It went from scalding hot to ice cold, so one had to wait for an acceptable temperature. At 1025 the owner knocked on our door with a 'time to leave". Nice!!! That's how you want your Sun to start. The cleaning guy then walked in without even knocking. So all that was a bit OTT and not worth the stress to be honest. A shame really.
We stayed in the ensuite double room & it was a very enjoyable stay. Excellent standards of cleanliness in a quiet location less than 5 mins walk from the sea front
