    The common area is nice, the kitchens are stocked, and the owner and workers are so friendly! The dorms don’t have a lot of extra space to move around but each bed has outlets and a privacy curtain. Would absolutely stay here again!

    The staff were fantastic, helpful, friendly and kind. The facilities and atmosphere was great, everyone socialised with each other, I ended up going another group because the atmosphere in the hostel was so lovely. The location is just out of the centre of town so is quiet, but is a 5 minute walk to the Main Street and all the shops and cafes. The staff helped us book our activities and get us the best price. I would definitely visit again!

    Beautiful hostel - at the end of town but still only a 5 minute walk to the Main Street. Wonderful staff who are there to help you with your every need! I stayed an extra night and almost stayed another after that! Lastly, the security is fantastic, the pod beds are comfy and the dorms were always clean.

    A really nice hostel. Location is good 10 min walk from everywhere you wanna be. Room was ok. The thing is the stuff, the girls are so not helpful! Looks like theyre doing you a favour when tou ask or need anything. When i checked out i confirm i can make my sandwiches later in the afternoon for my 24 night bus. When i got back i realized not only that the lady with the painted hair throw all of my food! She has taken most of it to herself!!! She offered to return it. Wtf?!

    We only stayed one night so hard to properly comment on the atmosphere but it seemed chilled and friendly. The room I stayed in was small with nowhere to really keep your bag that wasn’t in the way and the lockers for your valuables are downstairs which is quite annoying. I also found the bathroom floor to be dirty the whole time we were there. Ok location and nice staff though!
