We enjoyed our stay with our guests from Netherland in an old English atmosphere with very nice staff and good meals.

Dorm room and bedding were clean and cozy, staff were very kind and helpful, barkeep was a little overwhelmed but all in all we had a great night. Communal ablutions were neat although a private changing area by the showers would be really welcome. Charming little place, will recommend.
