Traveled with a friend. 15 minutes away from St Andrews park by walking. Clean. Easy checking in (since they know how delayed flights are & we arrived past 12mn and checking out was a breeze. Room quite cold even if we went during summer. Staff are helpful. Breakfast wasn’t bad. Not free though. It has its own kitchen that you can use to cook and store food. Best thing: it’s an eco-friendly hostel. Good value for money.
