    Does what is says adequately

    We stayed in the youth hostel family cabin; 1 double, 1 set of bunk beds and 3 single beds. This made it feel quite cramped. The en-suite facilities were basic but adequate. We had access to the kitchen, dining and lounge areas as with any YHA. No mod cons but perfectly adequate. The hostel is close to the river walk and so the town was easily accessed but in a residential suburb.

    Stayed 2 nights in Dec 2018
