Apart from the town itself the hostel was great. Even though the colours may not appeal to everyone, the dorms, the living room and the kitchen were nicely furnished. Most importantly everything was very clean and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. Also there was a little breakfast and a very tasty soup in the evening

Thanks, for staying with us and for the excellent review, it is most appreciated. We are happy to read that you found Duke Hostel to be great, that u found our facilities nicely furnished and very clean, our staff extremely nice and helpful. By the way the town itself offers mainly services, but the surrounding has a lot to offer, from walks and cycling to rafting and quad bikes. Cheers, Shoshy

Staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is very good + there are parking spots right next to the hostel. The kitchen and common room area are also clean but would need some airing - as there was quite an interesting smell...

Everything was pretty fine, atmosphere was lacking and it was a weird layout. Easy to get lost... Kitchen was clean. Fine place for a pit stop but I wouldn't spend a ton of time here.

Average place; nice for one or two nights but I would not stay longer. The facilities are very old and need a bit of tlc. Also, the atmosphere resembled a funeral.

Thanks for staying with us. I'm sorry to read that your review. We are upgrading all our facilities continuously, the Ladies bathroom was upgraded recently and so does the reception. The atmosphere is about the other guests so I'm sorry it wasn't up to your expectations. Cheers, Dory

dated establishment but does the job correctly, maybe a bit confusing and not enough showers.

Thanks for staying with us and for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that you felt that there are not enough showers, We do have 10 showers in the hostel, for about 40 guests max, and I think that it is more than most hostels. Cheers, Dory

Duke Hostel was wonderful - the staff who checked me in were warm and gave all the info I needed, showed me where the kitchen, laundry, bathroom facilities were on the way to the room. Made friends over free soup, the owner chatted with us about the area, local food, offered extra blankets for the cold night, chatted over breakfast the next morning. Kept the fire going in the common area to keep us warm, and there was a great music playlist, not too loud. Overall, a great stay.

The staff could not have possibly been more helpful or friendly, giving an excellent run down of local activities when we checked in. Atmosphere was a little dull but we were here in the low season and the hostel is also undergoing renovations currently so the bar down stairs was closed - so the low atmosphere is to be expected. Free bike hire was also a nice touch.
