This is a great hostel. The guys who own the place are travellers themselves, and they know what backpackers are looking for. They have created a homely and social atmosphere, and it's only a small hostel which adds to the charm. Highly recommended.

This hostel is not great or terrible, just average. On the positive side it has nice gardens and communal areas to relax, on the negative side it is poorly constructed, noisy, and customer service was not great.

Thanks for the comments. The positive aspects mentioned are hard to fault. On the negative side I have never had a complaint about our construction. Its amazing! Noisy may be due to the fact the European Champions League Football final was on at 5am the night this guest stayed. And last of all, I tried hard to get a smile out of this Australian guest, but some people have the troubles of the world on their shoulders...

The hostel is too big, it feels more like a large scale business than a personal and inviting hostel.
