    Always a great stay. Big solid beds with curtains, a personal light, a shelf, two plug sockets. Lockable storage under the beds. The place is maintained by paid staff not woofers, so the standard is consistently high. And it's so cheap!

    Good hostel with lounge and kitchen facilities just outside your room to mingle with other guests. Staff were helpful and friendly and had lots of activities which they could help you book such as the shuttle for the Crossing. We rented bikes from our hostel to ride around town which was really easy. Good sized lockers under your bed. Good location as you can walk into town.
