Property Description

Centrally located Family-friendly Hostel.

The place was very clean everywhere we went. We didn't spend alot of time there due to schedules but the breakfast was very reasonable and was nice to be able to prepare all we needed in the kitchen. The staff were pleasant and helpful, particularly Lady, I'm probably misspelling her name but she was great. All 5 of us thought it was a good place to stay and a good value. Would definitely recommend if hostels are you're thing.
