    Lovely building and lovely owners! Everything was clean and the guesthouse was welcoming and close to the downtown. There is a living room area with a computer and printer, books, games and a TV. The kitchen has everything you need (and more) and there is a small breakfast available :) I really enjoyed all the little perks added to the guesthouse so that you don't miss out on anything (even if you forgot your toothpaste). Unfortunately my mattress was really saggy

    I was expecting much of this place. But I must say that really loved it. I was just spending a night before going to Hamilton Airport and the place was incredibly CLEAN believe me, I had never seen in almost twenty years of staying in hostels a place as clean as this one in particular, not to mention that the house is quite enchanting as well. All in all, I had a wonderful experience in this Hostel.

    The bathroom was really small but the shower was in a separate room so it was convenient for 3 of us to get ready in the morning. The house itself has a twisty layout but is a beautiful character home. Tanya made us feel very welcome when we checked in

    Staff was very friendly, doors to the building stay locked, with a keycode entry so felt secure. Didnt use many of the amenities during my one night stay but looked like kitchen and laundry facilities were fairly clean. Unique older style building, seemed close to downtown. Didnt seem to have much atmosphere while I was there, seemed more just like a place to lay your head for the night while doing stuff in the city for the day
