We had a great time on the Avanti. Dave and Annie were great hosts, really friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend staying there to friends.

Awesome people and a fantastic location! Close enough to walk to just about anywhere or to the train station to take trams. Dave and Anni are awesome hosts and they make the Passenger Ship Avanti the best hostel experience I've had! SHAVE YOUR HEAD DAVE! :)


Dave and Annie are running a tight ship. The best advice and a great atmosphere. Recommened for anyone who wants real traveling experience. AVANTI!!

The agency we booked through did not state it was a hostel when we booked so we were a bit surprised upon arrival to discover it was such. Although it is a boat I do think the small size of the cabins should be emphasised and people should be made aware on booking just how small they are. To combat this issue the hosts have made an effort with the common area so you can relax here in the evening. This may be a great place for others but it wasn't for us.

It's a shame you didn't know that it was a hostel. We'd be interested which 'agency' had led you to believe otherwise. Our description points out that it is hostel, a boat and that you will be staying in a cabin. Our photos also reflect this.
