    Had a great stay here. Was able to keep my extra things in a locker for $1 while I hiked the Kepler which was a life saver.

    The hostel is a good base for people wanting to hike and explore the area. It's got all you really need. The only negative was that my room was next to the bathroom which attracts a bit of traffic and noise.

    I enjoyed my stay at this hostel. I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm. The kitchen is HUGE and lots of people can cook at once. The vibe is very chill here. It is a bit dated, but OK. The staff seemed pretty uninterested, but get the job done. Short walk into the business district. Overall, fine place to stay if you're exploring the area... don't expect 5 star accommodations. People didn't seem to be too social here.

    Clean and tidy, the rooms had enough space that everyone could put their bags down, and the addition of a TV room was nice too. One staff member was lovely and cheery but the other was so uninterested. Overall a good stay here and I'd happily come back

    We arrived at 8pm to a completely locked hostel, we called the number on the door to be told we should have received an email with the door code and instruction (still haven’t received this email). The guy on the other end of the phone finally gave us the code to get in the front door. The room was clean but the heater is located above on of the bunk beds, making it extremely hot for the person in that bunk. 1 female shower for a lot of people! Especially annoying when you have an early start.
