LOVED this hostel and enjoyed our stay altogether. I can't think of a bad word to say would recommend to anyone!!!


nice place. just in the end of long street. very convenient for everything. matt is friendly and helpful with his lovely little girl small. i'll be back!


Trevor and Matt were nice and helpful. The hostel was small and quiet, but lacked any real atmosphere and was a bit expensive for what it was. It would have been nice to have something included (ie free wifi, breakfast, towels, etc). Wifi was really frustrating, too. Kicked me off every 15 minutes.

Thank you for your comment. Towels are freely available on request. As for Wifi, unfortunately this is out of our control but if guests report having problems connecting we gladly assist them and we cannot afford to make this free. We are a very small establishment and our rates are very comparable to other hostels and even cheaper than most. We find your comment a bit unfair for the kind of hostel we are. We hope you enjoyed your stay here, hope to see you again


One World Lodge was one of my favourite hostels I have ever stayed. I stayed ten nights in a four-bed dorm. Most of the time alone as no one had booked it at the time. There is specious living room with attached kitchen and all facilities you need for cooking and eating. There are only two other bedrooms, one of them with attached toilet so it is never crowded with them shared one. Staff (Matt) was an excellent host, very friendly and happy to help and give a good advice at all time.
