This was my first time staying in a hostel dorm and it was a great experience. Fish tank had a perfect location and a really nice chilled, friendly atmosphere. Nice lounge and the kitchen was really clean and had free tea and coffee which was great. Incredibly comfortable beds too! More

I was in a 3 beds room shared. The room was so small that to open the suitcase, I had to bring it outside of the room. Room and toilet were not very clean. Very good location and for those travelling with InterCity or Naked Buses, the stop is just in front of the Hostel. More

Such a lovely hostel! The staff were super kind and always happy to help. It had a lovely atmosphere and everyone seemed friendly. I left my door open to my bunk room pretty much 24/7 and had no problems so it's super safe. Kitchen is a tad small but still very nice. It's quite far from More

Area we stayed in did not have the same security as the rest of the hostel, and resulted in the theft of some of our things (luckily nothing valuable). Otherwise, location was good, and the rest of the hostel looked nice. More

We really enjoyed our two nights’ stay at this hostel. At arrival, there was an issue with our booking but it was solved very quickly by the staff who let us stay in a private instead. Very nice service. The rooms are clean and spacious and the hostel itself has a very homey feeling to More

Really nice atmosphere with seating area's with kitchens facing the sunset over the mountains. Major drawback where the lousy beds and the ventilation that made too much noise during the nights. More

Very nice hostel rooms were clean with good shower. Having a tv in the room would have been nice but the communal lounge was good enough. More

The double room/ensuite was very small and basic, inadequate for 1 large/1 small case. Shower curtain and door/window curtain were stained. Surfaces dusty but otherwise clean and bright. Unfortunately we encountered the worst shared kitchen here. It was very crowded at dinnertime but at More
