    A spacious well equipped hostel made all the better by the friendly knowledgeable staff. Secure bike storage. Near to the ferryport. Good selection of local ales. Excellent view from the downstairs common room.

    Like others have noted, this is in a good location but is a bit pricey considering what it offers. Laundry is handy. Wifi very poor. Shower pressure non-existent. A decent budget choice, but may be more suited to extreme budget travellers.
