    The hostel is one of the greatest I have stayed in. The facilities are, without any doubts, the highest in quality I have experienced. The staff is extremely friendly and Brian (the owner) is always around for a interesting chat and to give you advice. We stayed in the Jedi Hut which made our stay unforgettable

    This place was one of the cleanest hostels I've been to! It was all tidy, the kitchen was perfectly equipped, there was enough space to cook with several other people. Furthermore, bathrooms and rooms super tidy and clean (no wonder, they close from 11 a.m to 3 pm every day! I'm 165 cm so the beds were alright but I can imagine being taller could be a little bit uncomfortable. However, really comfy! My favourite: the outdoor solar dome in the huge garden and the cozy lounge to hang out.

    I really enjoyed my stay at Skyewalker Hostel! It's my first time staying at a hostel and Skyewalker is way above my expectations! It is very clean and tidy. I appreciate that users have to mop the bath area after use so that the area is kept dry for others. That is very thoughtful! Besides this, there are many other systems set in place to make your stay comfortable for yourself and others. Although it is a little out of the way, it is worth the stay. I hope to make a return trip in future :)

    Never have stayed at a hostel before and I have to say my expectations were blown away. This was probably one of the nicest places we stayed at in our whole trip and also the least expensive. I would highly recommend.
