    We had an amazing stay at the Paintshop hostel! The staff was really open and caring.The breakfast was extensive and the location is perfect. We rented a bike at the hostel and walked to the beach within 10 minutes. The shared bathroom was cleaned twice a day and everything was clean. It was the best hostel we had during our trip, thanks!

    Don't think about anywhere else - the description is right, one night is not enough!! The staff here make you feel so at home - they will help you with whatever you need and in their free time, hang out and share stories if that's what you're looking for. The owners have put together a wonderful team - Kurk, Tim, Romintha, and Emma all have wonderful energy and work hard to make sure every guest is pleased. Great breakfast, wonderful common space, safe, clean. Couldn't ask for anything more!:)
