    My mother, Pearl, was a resident at the hostel for the final six months of her life, during which time she received wonderful care and respect from the doctor and all the staff, about whom I cannot speak highly enough. This is clearly a well-run establishment which places the interests and care of the residents as its first priority. I would have no hesitation in recommending it as an exceptional hostel.
