The hostel itself was great - we had a cute little private room with balcony access. There was only two toilets and one shower in the upstairs part though, so that was inconvenient. The staff was really great - JoJo was very friendly and helpful to us. If you're looking for a hostel that's close to partying/nightlife, this is definitely the one. If you're not, be prepared to not sleep on the weekends because it seemed like the music and craziness never stopped. Overall, it was a great stay.


I stayed here for 3 nights, and had a great time. The location being on the upper end of Long Street is great, since you can get to the bars and restaurants on Long by just walking, and can escape Long pretty easily as well if you want to visit other areas. The staff is always available for any of your needs; i never had to wait for anything or chase anyone down. For the price, i cant imagine you could do much better.

For some reason people kept putting dishes away in the kitchen at 5 AM?
