    Lovely staff, clean room and perfect location. The bed was probably the comfiest one I’ve ever had in a hostel! There were some issues with the dorm door’s lock, and the fact that there are no lockers is a bit inconvenient. The bathroom could do with a shower screen and more power points in the dorm would be great. Street parking was easy and free/untimed. Overall I’m looking forward to staying there again soon.

    The staff were friendly, rooms were nice and atmosphere was good. Only slight complaint was that the rooms didn’t seem very secure

    Extremely expensive for a hostel. Weird vibe - men hanging around staring at our table. Off road parking, or you have to pay for their parking?? There is a bar, self catering kitchen. Bathroom was average. No plug sockets by our bed, but 8 on the other side of the room! No lockers. No towel provided. The member of staff was fine - a bit odd. Fine for the one night before K'Gari but wouldn't go back again. Eerily quiet - I guess it's usually better when it's busy.
