Ryan and Danielle (staff) are super lovely. Rooms are nice and comfy (best sleep ever on those beds!). Good for solo travelers and everything nice and communal. No one is in Port for too long though so it's a good stop off


I really liked this hostel because I feel it has character. What I was missing in the room though was a locker to lock up my valuables plus a power plug in the room would have been great

This is a nice hostel with a good atmosphere. They offer free pick up / drop off services also. It's a good location into town, and also there is a shuttle bus which takes you into the town center every hour which is handy! They also have a board with activities that you can sign up to do the night before, so it's a good hostel to meet other people if that's what you're looking for. Also the staff were really friendly & to top it off, there's a pool!


Very nice clean comfortable hostel with good facilities. Walking talc from all the main attracted and lots of free activities. Very accommodating as we had to panel and leave at awkward times of the night. Would recommend


Very nice cosy hostel, right in the center of the town.


Nice hostel, good location, did have some food pinched though!


Clean, nice staff and good facilities.


Perfect hostel!


Such a nice place, really nice little town, great place to stay for a relaxing stay but still loads to do trips arranged etc.. rooms are clean and spacious, kitchen was really good to cook in, tv room is sociable and staff are so lovely.. booked one night as a stop over but had to add another soon as we saw it..


super friendly and helpful staff! Rooms and common areas were very clean and bright. Kitchen is very nice.

Cleanest hostel ive been in and the most relaxed was perfect place for a bit of a break


Danielle and Ryan we're brilliant. Lovely kitchen, and clean bathrooms. Only down side was the distance to the beach or town. Free use of the bikes made up for that and also provided an entertaining experience. Would return


Good Hostel and location with very nice staff. Kitchenware were present in the very new and nice kitchen. Lockers and sockets are not available in the rooms. It was realy cold because the windows are to old and are not tight. The bathroom was big and clean but also cold. Free Wifi is available.


Only stayed one night, but stay here every now & then. Close to 'city centre', clean, nice atmosphere, new kitchen. All good. Except, we got walked in on by the morning staff member whilst snoozing before check out. An armature mistake not to knock before entering a guests room, no harm done though.


One of the best hostels we've ever stayed in!
