The toilet in room 14 needs either cleaned or replaced. Only one working electrical socket working in the room.

We had a very enjoyable stay...the only problem was it was too short! They have great facilities (including a swimming pool & games room) and a garden area out the back! It's a nice walk down to the waterfront and not that much further into town. Our hosts were very friendly and accomodating. Would be nice to have free wifi, and our bunk room was pretty small (slept 8), but the other rooms I saw were nice and most seemed to have ensuites. Would definitely recommend this hostel! :-)

New owner, so they are just getting sorted. Welcoming, nice lounge/bar area. Kitchen well equipped. Kitchen/diner area a bit cold but owners are hoping to improve this.
