8/10 Very good

Great but please YHA allow an earlier check-in
We stayed on a cold Sat & Sun night in December. Very warm and comfortable place. Typical hostel. Can't speak for the meals as we self catered and used the pub in Lebanus (very friendly and good food). Only gripe at the hostel is the 5pm check-in. This is too late in winter. It's dark and icy.

Excellent customer service, I received a call around 8pm to check I was on my way and not lost, a nice touch. On arrival a lovely and welcoming greeting, very informative on the hostel facilities and area. I was taking part in an event on the Friday morning and had left the lid for my water bladder at home, the man who was on reception was very helpful in helping to try and find me a work around, above and beyond what he needed to do. Very friendly hostel

Location is excellent and beautiful surroundings. The only downfall: There was really noisy, rude and selfish people staying at the property that was laughing and talking so loudly until 1 am in the morning when I had to go and say something. I also would have liked a proper English breakfast.
