    Our room was clean and the overall facilities were really nice but the bed was a bit too soft for my personal liking. The staff and other people staying were incredibly friendly and helped make our holiday even better by giving us helpful tips on activities and places to eat. I would come back here :)

    The owner of this hostel is incredibly nice! During my stay there it was apparent that he tried to remember every guest that entered his hostel. The walk there was about 20 minutes from the downtown area, however there is a shuttle offered out to guests. They also have bikes to rent. There are 2 different common areas, one had some board games and a TV and couches while the other had a pool table and a ping pong table with a TV and couches. There’s also a pool. Great place! I would come back.

    This was a great place to stay! It’s within walking distance to town but still a nice and quiet location. The staff were awesome, they helped us find things to do around town that were either free or inexpensive. It’s a really welcoming hostel and it felt like home!

    I enjoyed my stay there the only things is that is not in the city like 25 mins by foot but the hostel is very comfy and the reception very kind and helpful. You could ask for a ride for your check in and check out. I recommande it 🙂 and it's not so far from the free hot pool!

    Very Good

    Our room floor was pretty gross.. rubbish about the place and the gents' bog was grim and smelly. The overall score we are giving is pretty low for us but I actually strangely liked this place. The more permanent guests were lovely to chat with and the games room was pretty cool! Excellent WiFi too and comfy beds. Would recommend but probably more in summer when they care a bit more and there are more guests (it was pretty dead).
