    Great location to visit Ella Rock and 9 arch bridge, even a walkable distance to the train station along the tracks. Extremely friendly staff, were picked up in the jeep from the town when we arrived! Would easily have stayed here for a week, feels very homely and there's a great vibe. The dinner was also delicous and very affordable! Would highly recommend!

    Fantastic hostel, great social atmosphere and such a beautiful view. Nice to be outside the tourist centre, and so close to the Ella Rock hike. Facilities and meals great too, had breakfast and dinner from the hostel for all days we stayed. Definitely recommend.
