The staff was welcoming and helpful. We arrived late, as we had issues finding the location. The staff was very helpful with this process, one man going so far as to provide his personal cell phone number incase we needed assistance after his shift ended. When we checked in, the gentleman at the front desk was very welcoming, and gave us all the directions we needed. The shower facilities could be a bit cleaner.

What is Ferry House Hostel like? Well we've seen it from the outside. We made booking for 2 separate dates. On the first date we learned upon arriving that they'd overbooked. They were nice and arranged for us to stay at a very nice Bed&Breakfast for the same price (without breakfast). The B&B was nice and it's owners also! As far as Ferry House is concerned? 2 days prior to our 2nd 'date' they sent us an email. Overbooked. Don't come. Without apologies. Would not recommend.


hostel overbooked when we got there. had to stay somewhere else.


wow, the owner is an alright man, first of all. now to the nasty stuff. the whole place looks like he is living there with his fam, and hostel guests are a weird , rare occasion. the bedsheets were dusty and unclean, just like the rest of the hostel. the kitchen is a dirty mess! the cooker hasnt been cleaned in years.his private food is on the cooker&in ther microwave. the backyard is full of trash, old bikes, debris, paint...the shower room is not usable. icecold and filfthy.


Very clean and nice staff! I enjoyed my stay there, it felt more like a hotel with bunk beds. Great if you are taking the ferry the next day
