I had a great stay. This is a very organized hostel. Everything you need is right there, with amazing staff (I met Robbie and May) who bend over backwards to make your atay enjoyable. Free breakfast inclincludes cereal, bagles, cream cheese, coffee, tea, juice. You can't go wrong here, though I'd suggest bookingbooking direct through their website to save a little money.


My Stay at the hostel was very fruitful, the staff were very helpful and organized, "Robbie" oriented me with the hostel facilities and all options present in the hostel since my recipetion. I was feeling very easy to use any thing and i acknowledge to him his cooperation to satisfy all of my requests. The breakfast was very good.

Great experience, the host was awesome - welcoming, talkative, polite, helpful, social. The hostel is 3 miles from city centre but hostel provide free bikes and good information. Eat as much as you like breakfast! Great social place to stop. Ask host about taco truck =]


I planned on staying at this hostel for 3 nights. However, after having THE most amazing time, I ended up extending my days here for another 4 nights. This was because; the hostel is incredibly homely, super clean, has a great atmosphere, and safety was certainly not an issue. This place also has a hot tub. And to top it all off, the hostel manager Robbie, is one of most accommodating people I have ever met. I would 100% recommend, I had the best time here! Thanks Robbie, and I will be back!


Had never been to a hostel before, so I have little to compare it to- but it was comfortable, clean. The host was really nice. People there were really chill. Was a pleasant experience.

Great hostel, great value. Really cheap and fun, Robbie who runs the hostel is a nice guy, toured me through the place at check-in, rooms are quite small but sufficient, wifi working perfectly, bathrooms were pretty clean except for a shower curtain but fine, only thing I did not like was breakfast, would at least appreciate jam for bagels. Bike rental and cool activities, there is a hot tub but have not used it. I recommend to all. Many thanks!
