Thanks Dawn for making us feel so welcome and comfortable. The Hostel is set up very well, but your personal efforts and interest have made our time here very special. Thanks for the Herbs (great idea!!) and all the tips/info re local area. Pleased we confirmed that ‘Muskrat picture’. This was our first experience in hostelling after 30 years of travelling. But now we will definitely do it again sooner.
