More like a Hotel !
Was a bit nervous about staying here as never stayed at a Hostel before, but was fantastic, better than some hotels I've stayed at. We had a private ensuite Double room, was a Sunday so fairly quiet, probably busy/noisy on a Fri/Sat, Large free car park, short walk into town. Would not hesitate to stay here again
