People in hostel are considerate. I was served nicely, and the staff helped me a lot for my struggles. I felt like I am at my home during my stay.

Russel needs to have a look over this place. I would stay if on a budget. There is some great volunteer staff cleaning and assisting, however the place is more a typical boardinghouse. Staff doing odd things at odd hours like Attempting to fix toilet’s/showers at midnight won’t help them. Its a fair way from town, so be prepared for some walks, and there is not much in the way of traveller advice. Beds are fine.
