I had a pleasurable three-day stay and found the Froggy culture on the side of fascinating, friendly and (if you wanted) private. Peter worked hard to make an arrangement (due to a physical limitation) that warmed my emotions. While the property is well worn, that makes it comfortable. The 'regulations' are at once strict (like no glass) and reasonable (sounds down after 9) for both the youthful and more permanent (working men, mostly) residents. A well-used a free internet connected computer!

VERY dirty everywhere. Staff not available for checkin - even though they were on the premises!! Ensuite bathroom has no door to the rest of the room!
We are a family of five from Europe. We have been sleeping in hostels in many countries in the Northern part of Europe.. We are used to clean hostels with friendly staff. Frogshollow is definitely not intended for our target group: It is meant for backpackers who are on a very low budget and therefore may have to accept dirty kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms. That said, we found the price very high considering the standard of cleanliness. We had to wait 2 hours to be checked in - from 3pm to 5!
