    One of the best hostels you’ll stay at for ambience, vibe, location.. you name it! Awesome cafe on site, ridiculously cheap massage, and accommodation to suit anyone from a tent to a giant teepee! I might try and get a room over the lake next time, the private rooms are as cheap as you’ll find and not at all drab. Highly recommend!

    This is such a quirky and comfortable hostel- we only had one night here but wish we could have stayed longer. It's got a really nice atmosphere and is a cool place to stay.

    The Arts Factory has a great atmosphere, the staff is friendly and helpful, there’s plenty of free events at the hostel and it’s in walking distance from everything you need or you can jump on the shuttle bus. I had a great time while staying here and ended up extending sever times.

    Kitchen was a mess and the rooms were absolutely freezing. Our door kept being left open which led to loads of moths flying around the lights. Full of stoners so if that’s not what you’re into then there is no atmosphere for you, there are also no activities going on or live music as other reviews may have said. Definitely not worth staying here, moved to a different hostel after 3 nights as the vibe was weird.
