    Position of the lounge and comfortable armchairs -gets the best of the sunshine when the sun is out.! The room I stayed in was also a sun trap especially nice to wake up to the sun shining in the morning! It's good that the check out is 11am and not earlier making the stay so much more relaxed. Check- in was quick and straightforward thanks to Ralph reception manager. I was particularly grateful to Ralph for finding suitable bed at such short notice and on a Saturday night ( an event I had left the hostel a couple of nights prior to attend in another part of Scotland was cancelled due to Coronavirus situation ). Great price so I would certainly choose to stay again and more often than if it cost more.

    all good excellent location slightly dirty kitchen. be careful at the reception, there is a guy with glasses Is a spanish. But talk french i i font know her Nationals and don't remember his name he wanted me to sign a credit card receipt to make the payment, it seemed strange because I had already paid with booking and when I saw the last 4 numbers of the card I realized it was not mine I talked to him but he insisted then I thought there might be a scam and I went to the police to explain the matter be careful.
