I was on the ground floor on my first night and didn't get any sleep. There was a room in our window that opened straight onto the main corridor and people were talking and yelling all night and all morning. The music from the bar was also loud. I wasn't very impressed by the showers on the first floor either - there were no hooks to hang clothes etc. So you had to hang them outside the shower door. Then moved upstairs and everything changed, it was fantastic - loved the rooms and the bathroom.
Baldo was amazing. We were greeted by a very happy face and couldn't be more helpful when checking us in - which included shots. The apartment we stayed in was a 2 bedroom, with a kitchen, perfect for two couples. It was right in the old town. It was a little hard to find but we just asked a travel shop and they pointed us in the right direction. Baldo then gave us information and his recommendations on where to go. Thanks for everything Baldo!
The hostel was great. Staff are fantastic, breakfast is cheap, and on the top floor it is quiet if you wa t a decent nights sleep. There are also plenty of showers and toilets. The only complaint is that there is no locker room. We were able to leave our bags, we got a ticket and they were all left in reception space for anyone to pick up. when we went back to collect our bags no one check the ticket numbers matched up. We could have taken any bag with us.
Skippys is awesome if you want a chilled out relaxed stay with locals. Bakery, grocery store, pub all down the end of the street. Right on the river, you can watch the rafters come down the rapids over breakfast. Such a friendly hostel. If you want the best view get the double room which overlooks the river.
The hostel staff were very friendly and happy to answer any questions. We stayed in the Secret Garden part of the hostel but we were still welcome to use the hostel for breakfast and the free pasta nights. We stayed in a twin room on our first night cause the double was booked out. We then moved to a double room upstairs. Just gorgeous! flat screen tv, small fridge, safe, huge bathroom with a shower and spa bath! Make sure you close the windows at night though cause the mozzies will get you!
