I thought this hostel was just "ok" until night time rolled around. I'm all for people partying etc but we were on the 2nd floor so quite close to the street and the noise was never ending up until about 5am, which would have been ok if it weren't for the drunks throwing empty bottles and things up at the hostel windows. Did not feel very safe or secure. Other then that was not so bad, although the staff seemed less then knowledgeable and not very enthusiastic to help you out, not the best stay

A few blocks walk to the shops/cafes but its not too far. There is a nice big kitchen to use and the staff and other travellers were all nice and welcoming. The skylight in the room wakes you up perhaps a bit too early. Quite a nice and clean hostel

The staff and other backpackers were all very friendly. Our room was quite spacious and clean, the flat screen TV was also a bonus. There was a skylight in our room which didn't bother us as we were leaving early anyway but it might wake others earlier then they would like. You have to walk a couple of blocks to get back into the thick of the shops and cafes but all-in-all this is a nice hostel to stay at.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, we were instantly upgraded to a better room on arrival which had a tv and private bathroom! The rooms were clean and had great views over the lake. The atmosphere was non existant but it was a Thursday night. Location is great, one street back from the waterfront and surrounded by excellent cafes!

This was a fun hostel with a surprisingly good atmosphere. There is a bar on site which is currently the only bar in the town so you get to mingle with the locals and other backpackers. The service was also very good, we arrived back half an hour after food stopped but after a quick chat with the cook they were happy to throw a pizza together for us :)

When we checked in we were upgraded to a better room free of charge which was a winner! The Union bar next door is awesome, and the spa/sauna on the roof is amazing!
