Nice hostel with a friendly vibe and a great outdoor space with barbeque facilities. The shower in our dorm room was average - cold/lukewarm water that trickled out. Not enough plugs to charge devices and the major downside was how small the kitchen was - very chaotic with everyone trying to cook at once. Also breakfast was pretty bad (very stale bread) but in spite of this we still had a great time here and met some great travellers so would still recommend :)


The hostel was really dirty and the showers were ice cold the whole time. There was more volunteers there than guests and they all sat around smoking and drinking together - not really including any of the guests in their conversations. There no lockers and anyone can walk into the hostels. We rented bikes 1 day to go to the wine vineyards and the bikes were horrendous. We have up after 1 vineyards as it was impossible to ride the bikes.

When we arrived at the hostel about 1pm there was no one to be found. We waited 20mins until going out to walk around the town. We returned at 4.30 and again found no one. After another 30min wait we decided to give up and walked to find another hostel. A shame because from what we saw it looked like a cool place. Unfortunately from reading other reviews it looks like others have had the same problem!


The laid back atmosphere is really nice, but bathrooms are just disgusting, no lockers or any other kind of security stuff. The garden is nice but easily accessible from outside...I woke up with a dog sleeping under my bed!!


Incredibly friendly and helpful staff. They run a group meal for anyone in the hostel who wants to join in every night. I would highly recommend pizza night! The rooms are spacious and you can also rent bikes.
