Very nice clean and comfortable beds thought we would be the only oldies there but just as many of us as the younger travellers. Probably the best place we stayed during our 2 weeks travelling.

Tripinn hostel is a lovely old building that is well maintained, clean, warm and comfortable and is in a quiet residential street but close to the town centre. It has a very pretty well kept garden. It also has too many restrictive or threatening notices. The kitchen notice informs you that you are under surveillance and if you leave a mess you will be expelled from the hostel without refund. Other hostels just politely remind people to clean up as soon as they have eaten in consideration to other guests. The most annoying though was the restriction on shower use. One may not cleanse ones body before 7am or after 10pm! if you wake at 6am and want to shower, tough luck. This meant we left straight after breakfast at about 7am, unwashed because then the showers were suddenly busy. In the real world i start work at 7am so i find this rule ludicrous. Its a great way to limit power and water use though. If you don't mind petty rules and restrictions the place is great and the tariff fair. .

We stayed in a double room, very clean and comfortable. Newly renovated shared bathrooms close to room. Great kitchen for food preperation with fridge storage facilities provided. Large back deck for all to enjoy a drink in the afternoon. Plenty of lounge area with cosy fire for the evening, great value for money.
