Really nice clean hostel but the majority of guests are long termers so although friendly it's a bit cliquey- wouldn't recommend for solo travelers looking to meet people. Also found the staff a bit too strict- I.e I had a late flight but wasn't allowed to use the kitchen/ living room after 12 without paying an extra $10....a lot of other hostels are more easy going

Thank you for your comment, we really value them. Winter time we have more long term people staying, as do all hostels in order to be able to survive the winter months. Allowing people to stay until 12pm is extremely reasonable, most hostels don't allow you to stay after check-out, so not sure why this would be considered strict... I am pleased we are doing a good job and creating a clean hostel for our guests.

Awesome place!! More like staying in a hotel than a hostel. Especially love the hot tubs! Nice kitchen and there's a restaurant too. Friendly staff. Only negative on my stay was that a school was saying who were really noisy- no one seemed to asked them to keep it down

Bag was stolen from my room and the staff were very unhelpful ("it happens"). All they cared about was that I paid for the call I made to my uk bank (someone stood next to me throughout the call pointing at the phone screen shouting "that's $5" very aggressivly). The security here is very poor- keys open multiple rooms and random people were forever walking in and out. On the last day I was woken at 6,30am and accused of weeing over the balcony (I'm a girl?!) and shouted at. I promptly left.
