Latest Review

" The hostel has many spaces to chill and it's full with activities to do when you're not planning an outing. I wasn't really looking for that backpacker lifestyle, but everyone seemed to be having a great time and the place breeds good vibes. The staff are friendly, helpful and enjoy being apart of the fun. Location is a few minutes walk to the bottle-o and shops. 15-20 min walk to city centre. "
