Good if overpriced hostel with a comfortable and sociable communal area, quiet dorm rooms and friendly and helpful staff. However, it's located so far from the city centre (mostly uphill) that it really puts a downer on staying there. Great if you like a lot of walking, though.

Hi, We are pleased you enjoyed your stay ...we really go the extra mile to make sure our lodge is as comfy for our guests. Especially being surrounded by such a tranquil garden with nature all around you. Next time you stay take the river side stroll into town it misses all the hills and is a lot shorter route.


1st lady on telephone put us on hold for a long time them asked us to call back. Do not answer the phone if you're not in a position to talk to a customer. The pillows were paper thin and the other lady who works there made us feel like it was the biggest chore ever to get us extra pillows. The foam beds are also not comfortable as i could feel the metal bars with my ribs and hips. Other than that, the place was kept well, pretty basic but ok. Nice location and a short walk into town.
