    Great stay. We’re a big family with kids of all ages. My oldest went to a dorm room while we were in a spacious comfortable room (oddly large bathroom). Woman at front desk was very efficient and helpful when checking in. We enjoyed the cold breakfast the next morning (staff very quiet in the kitchen but signs up telling you to wash your own dishes etc so we followed everyone else). Very friendly man at front desk while leaving. Wish we could’ve stayed longer as there’s a lot of great music.

    This was the first hostel I've ever stayed at, and it set the bar very high! I've stayed in two other hostels since Rowan Tree and they make me miss the experience I had at Rowan Tree. There's a nice cafe attached, and the room I stayed in was very clean (I stayed in a mixed dorm). The bathroom on the floor only had two toilets and one was out of order the two nights I was there, but that was really the only snag I ran into at this hostel.

    The room was surprisingly spacious and comfortable, but the bathroom only had one working toilet for the whole floor. And they had GLUTEN FREE BREAKFAST ITEMS. I was way too excited for that bowl of cereal 😂
