    Excellent place to stay. The staff are extremely good here. The place is super quiet and zen and relaxing. It’s a 20 or so walk to the city centre. If you wanna party stay on Grafton street instead , if you want a lovely chilled vibe and pool and hammocks and cleanliness, stay here. Depends what you are after. We loved it here as we wanted a relaxed time! Great facilities (showers great and clean and plenty available). They do free shuttle bus to the city and back too! Thanks so much :)

    Great place if you are looking for a chill and friendly atmosphere with an awesome vibe. A little out of town but they run frequent shuttles and will do anything they can to help. One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at along the east coast!

    I highly recommend this hostel! My boyfriend and I stayed in a private room, and we have no complaints. The staff and owners went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay. It is located away from the main oceanfront drag of downtown, but the walk isn’t bad and bikes are free to rent from the hostel. Definitely check this place out!

    This hostel is definitely recommended if you want to be away from any nightlife. It's a bit far from everything but they offer free bikes to use, plus walking 25 minutes to the closest ATM/shop/restaurant isn't too bad. The BBQ was amazing. Staff are very helpful. Fast wifi. Free pool. Hammocks. Need I say more?

    this place was wayyyyy to far from the actual city of Cairnes. I didn't realize it was a 45 minute walk to the city central when I booked it. Other than the location, this is a nice hostel. There are plenty of nice places to hang out. When I told the hostel I was checking out early in a very respectful way, the women at the check in desk got very defensive and angry.
