  • Although a bit of a walk from the city centre, this hostel was FABULOUS. The house keeper- whose name I unfortunately forget- was so warm and welcoming. The kitchen was amazingly well-equip, the beds were comfortable, and the sitting room was comfortable. This is not a place for people who want to party but a place for those who want to relax and explore the city and surrounding area. Extremely clean, amazing bathrooms, our only issue was location (which was quickly made up for by everything).

  • I booked to stay in the four-bed dorm. This is more like a small room (hobbit house) with two long narrow beds, long enough for two people on each (I would have been playing footsies with someone I didn't know). I asked not to stay in this room and paid additional to go in a twin share. I was lucky as there was no-one else in the room and I ended up on my own. There was no secure locker in either room. The lady managing was excellent and helpful, location peaceful although far away from centre.

  • Well.... we took the cheapest option... For 10 punds more (genreraly all over scotland) you get a real brekfast and real beds. We slept in a barrel on very hard matrasses that you use in gymnastics... So I wasn't impressed. Brekfast was just serials and toast. We did meet some of the nices and funniest people to talt to though in this hostel. But really it wasn't worth the money...

  • While this is a bit of a hike out of town, there is a bus that will take you to within a stone's throw. Slept in the hobbit hole, which is an enclosed round wooden structure just outside the main house (there are of course rooms inside the house too). Call me a giant nerd, but it was awesome. Super comfortable, and the facilities in the main building are lovely, particularly the kitchen. There were a few families there when we stayed, and everyone was friendly as could be. Lovely place to stay.

  • Very comfortable room , 20 minutes walking distance to town centre. The staff (only one woman who's name escapes me for the moment) was friendly and very helpful A big plus was there no bunk beds so none of us geriatrics had to fight over bottom bunks. All in all a very pleasant stayl
