    Loved this hostel!! The staff was friendly and so helpful. Conveniently located right next to the bus station and everything was no more then 15 minutes to walk to in town. The bathrooms could use a little work but still loved my stay!! Will definitely recommend!!

    Overall we loved the hostel. There was a mix up with who was supposed to be in our room which made things a little unorganized. Also there were three lockers in a four person room. Hot water did not work in the shower. We only stayed for one night so it was fine but definitely could have been better. Location is great.

    Great hostel! The staff was EXCELLENT! Dave, at the front desk, was so upbeat, helpful and engaging. He really cares about his job and that each person who stays at the hostel has a great time. He is very personable and willing to help out in any situation. Thanks Dave! The only downfall of the place is the location. It is right next to the bus station and a busy road. I shared a room on the first floor facing the street and it was pretty noisy. Otherwise great value! Thanks Snoozles!
