    Staff really nice, was able to do laundry and was offered extra dry time if needed. Also allowed me to change rooms ion my second night because of a challenging roommate situation. Large common space for many cooks in the kitchen.

    We really enjoyed this hostel! Free coffee in the mornings, tea, cereal and toast for breakfast. Great facilities, everything you need for cooking and two big fridges. I said cleanliness was ok. Our bathroom never got cleaned but the receptionist was very nice and did a quick wipe down for us. About a 20 minute walk into downtown and a SuperValu across the street. Overall, we had a great stay!

    Superb facilities - large rooms with secure storage, super clean bathroom and large kitchen with a good free breakfast. We got a whole 8 bed room to ourselves! only downside was not being told check out time and they got annoyed when we left late, but apart from that it was great value for money and would definitely book again.

    Phenomenal kitchen, best for a hostel I’ve stayed in. Complete with dishwasher. Rooms generally clean, nice lounge area to socialise, cheap entry to the gym next door. Had a bad experience with some other guests in the room which wasn’t dealt with well (a group of 7 people staying together coming in at 3-4am for three nights straight banging the doors and turning the lights on and singing loudly) but otherwise we had a great stay.

    Hostel was a bit further out than we thought but still within walking distance from the Main Street. Staff were so lovely and so helpful, when we were staying there were quite a lot of young families staying in the hostel which was lovely to see but difficult for two girls in our earlier 20s to meet many people. Facilities were perfect.

    Great value. Rooms and common areas are perfectly clean. It's not very conveniently located for people who travel without a private car. Other than that, good experience overall.

    To say this is a “Hostel” I believe is misleading -this is a hotel with bunk beds. My time was fine here, but I don’t think I would return. Pros: - Clean - Comfortable common room - Good kitchen - SuperValu and off license across the road Cons: - Location - A long walk into town - Atmosphere - No hostel atmosphere, no chance to meet other people - Mix of People - large proportion of guests are families with young kids - If you want a preview of parenthood mornings then visit breakfast

    The bed was comfy. The room was clean. Kitchen was well equipped. Had tv at the lounge area. Free breakfast. Ample parking spots. Location was okay. Quite a distance from the town centre. My only issue was the bathroom. They had a bathtub but it clogs. So when you take a shower, the water can go above your ankle and takes sometime to go down the drain. It feels kinda disgusting.

    Not impressed with 3 Lakes. At least their staff were friendly. The hostel wasn’t clean, the shower leaked all over the floor leaving the bathroom constantly wet. The carpets should be removed!
