Latest Review

" Yet again another good stay at this hostel. Ryan and Jamie made our castaways trip. They are bloody amazing, I left my backpack on a bus and Jamie was so quick to sort it and was just great throughout the trip and Ryan was great too! Million times better than my castaways trip last year thanks to them! Also, staff at the hostel were great as usual! "
