    Chose it because of the looks (rustic) and the good reviews. It is an old/rustic building indeed, not very modern at all. Querky atmoshpere. Been to many many backpackers around the world, and considering there were a number of people staying (mainly long-term mature people) and thus using the facilities, I have seldom come across backpackers' facilities that are kept this clean. Not perfect, but close. So, well done. Fresh towels, soap, breakfast freely available. Staff/owner is super friendly!

    Cold in the winter, though warm enough blankets and beds. Mostly older crowd, long-term residents when I went. Quiet and clean, good for sleep and cereal for breakfast.

    It is more of a homeless shelter than a hostel. I think we were probably the only backpackers there; the rest were all homeless and dodgy characters that I didn’t feel safe around. Constantly felt watched whenever I left the room. On top of that I had to basically beg staff for a room key as they do not normally give room keys. Staying at this place taught me to read reviews! We left first thing in the morning and will never ever ever be back :)

    Did not feel safe. The facilities and location were okay but the people staying and some of the staff members were hostile. Were a lot of people staying long term, mature crowd. Would definitely not recommend staying here as a young female.
