The kitchen facilities are barely equipped. You need to get all utensils from reception which closes at 7 pm. The bed wasn't comfy at all and no one seems to be checking on the soap dispensers in the bathroom as all of them had been empty during my entire stay (3 nights). The managers seem nice but could definitely make more of the facilities!


absolutely NO equipment at all in the kitchen. You have to pay 6 Dollars per HOUR for WIFI (or use the free computers) reception is more closed than open absolt irritating atmosphere in the hostel rooms are looking like prison cells pool is verry ugly u better pay a few dollars more and go to a real hostel


We had a very friendly and sincere receptionist, who checked us in within 10 minutes. Car park was spacious, which we loved as we were a little bit worried where to park our car. Travelling with a car it is essential for us to have a parking space at the hostel.

The beds were not very comfortable but for one night it was okay. stuff was very friendly. Unfortunately the hostel is a little bit far from the (greyhound) bus/ferry station and there is only one shuttle bus going at 10am.


It said the reception opens 24 hours but it closed at 7pm and didnt open till 9 am. Kitchen facilities very poor

I'm sorry our recp hr are not long enough 9am-7pm.We have 24 hr check-in, so people can call me 24hr a day to check in or if there is any problems I'm available.in busier seasons we open longer. Many people love our large,clean kitchen,we have 8 gas stoves, 6 sinks with cleaning supplies. 1 toaster 1kettle 2 microwaves & food processor. In reception we provide pots and pans and supple Free tea/coffee toast &spreads. My business is a family run hostel and we try our best to help our guests.
