    The best part about Summer House is the staff. Reception were so helpful, acting instantly with any issues, and were always ready to give us a smile and a chat. The bar staff were so much fun. The activities and game nights in the bar really made our trip. We've made so many friends because of Summer house and visit regularly. We definitely recommend you stay at Summer House!

    Stayed in a 4 bed dorm which was spacious enough and equipped with lockers as well. It is a bit out of town, but they do really good in compensating it with their hourly free shuttle and the free bike rental. Unfortunately our checkin was not the best, we did not get any information at all. Only when we were in the kitchen we found out we had to get cutlery and plates for a deposit at reception. Breakfast is only until 9 and as nobody told us and there were no signs, we missed it the first day.

    I have a mixed review of this hostel. The staff were really lovely, the bar had great prices. However, I kind of felt that the vibe wasn’t what I was expecting. Almost all the guests were long-term, many were middle aged to old men, and there were also a couple of really young kids. Cheap drinks meant everyone was drinking from the afternoon onwards. Also needing to out a deposit down on cutlery you can’t keep in the kitchen, and there were roaches.
