Latest Review

" This hostel was really good. The breakfast is probably the best I've ever had at a hostel and even had almond milk for those who can't have dairy like me. The staff for the most part were friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, being only a few minutes walk to town. The only complaint would be that they say you can do laundry, however they don't have a dryer so not really practical to get washing done and dry in a short amount of time. "
