I arrived late evening but dave (the owner) arrived within a few minutes to let me in. The hostel is superclean and provides a lot of good services such as free wifi, free spices to cook with, bordplaying games and free coffee/tea. Dave is a great help if it comes to providing information about jobsearch or anything else you'd need to know. I would definitely stay here again if i'm around some time!


Great place to stay, very homely, clean and friendly environment, also great tour offers. Keep doing what you do.


Lovely hostel. Has a very home feel about it which was nice. Lots of people seemed to be living and working in the hostel so may not be good if you are interested in meeting other travels.
