    Fantastic hostel. The guy from Uruguay (so sorry I am terrible with names) was awesome. Super friendly and made my friend and I feel welcome immediately. The hostel is nice and clean with a nice big kitchen and common space. You could charge electronics in the lockers. We enjoyed everything about our stay here.

    Great hostel! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful! The kitchen and dining area is nice and big. They have lots of board games to choose from and a nice fire to sit by. I really liked how eco friendly they were and also had signs for tips on how you can be eco friendly as well! The room was spacious and beds were comfy (TWO pillows)

    Generally awesome place, my only one complaint (which I have noticed at other YHA places too) is there is not enough toilets for the amount of people staying there. The amount of times I had to wait in a long queue just to pee was quite annoying, otherwise fantastic place and would highly recommend

    Really expensive laundry and only 2gb a day (tho that is reliable). Communal kitchen was lacking in oils and spices. For the cost we felt like this stuff should be obvs included.
