    Nice hostel. Upgraded us to a 4 bed from a 10 for free, which was lovely. Quiet but nice atmosphere and very close to the beach. Kitchen was big with loads of space in fridges and kept very clean.

    Nicest YHA I've been to by a country mile. Need to just put on some information about how to get to the hostel from the Greyhound stop, I walked quite abit before realising the tram drops off just at the bottom of the street. Suffers abit of a lack of atmosphere but it's still really really nice and clean

    Lugar extremamente limpo, staff sempre dispostos a ajudar e sempre cuidando do lugar. Localização perfeita, trem quase na porta, pouco minutos andando até a praia, até o ferry. Só achei que meu quarto especificamente não ficava trancado e isso nos deixou um pouco inseguros, mas eu me hospedaria novamente.

    I enjoyed my stay here, it's really big hostel, but really nice and the events they have are so fun. Staff are really nice. Good location not far from the tram stop and quick walk to the beach. Beds super comfy. Like most YHAs, I would recommend.

    Great hostel, loved the main common room, good place to come and relax. Ideal location and beds were sooo comfy. Would just advise to bring ear plugs for sleeping cause the walls are pretty thin and my neighbours had movies playing loud all night which kept me up.

    It wasn’t 150m from the Greyhound bus stop. One of the reasons I booked it for was because it said it was.
