Staff is awesome ! ;D


This hostel is not ideal if you're traveling alone, there is no atmosphere or real common area for people to hang out. The kitchen stinks of old oil, the girls dorm was super tight and there were limited toilets in the whole hostel. The breakfast is pretty good and the staff member Tim was super helpful.


Great little place to stay. Stayed in 8 bed mixed dorm, room was big enough, beds comfy, bathroom clean. Pretty good location, only a few minutes walk from the main section of the town where all the shops, pubs and shops are. Only real issue was parking, limited spots where available, and spaces where tight. Pretty much first come first served, park anywhere there is a space and that isn't obstructing the road which was a bit tricky. Otherwise had an enjoyable stay.


This is really good, actually much better than our expection considering the good price. There is even a private bathroom and a fridge in our room! The bed is pretty comfortable, and the breakfast is good enough. Highly recommended!

Hostel is on the main street, short walk to the shop. Staff were helpful with booking trips and directions. Breakfast was good.
