Overall enjoyed my 8 night stay. Owner is a great guy. Weren't many people there so very quiet. Stove top filthy and only got cleaned a day before I left. Kitchen in general was pretty dirty and no fridge. Shower wasn't cleaned at all, but has hot water! Dorm was only swept once and rubbish bin emptied once. Didn't get clean sheets like a lot of hostels after maybe 4 nights. People could just walk in off the street as main door was often not locked. I was never given a key to it like others.
There was no hot water, but the staff was so nice. My confirmation for my bus fell through. They called every bus company looking for an alternative for me then paid for my taxi and made sure that I had a ticket in my hand before leaving.
The owner, Simon, couldn't do enough for us. Hair cuttng, dance classes, making dfficult bookings.......excellent!
