This was my first hostel experience and I have nothing negative to say about it. I was so impressed by the cleanliness and upkeep, but the biggest surprise to me was how well stocked the kitchen was! I had brought a bit of food hoping I could find a way to eat some of my own stuff instead of eating... More

This is our second year staying at the apartment that Sharon rents near the hostel. Sharon is amazing! We feel like we're coming home to family when we stay there. Only three days this time, last year we stayed a week. Super clean with every possible amenity and then some. See you next year!

We stayed 3 nights there. The value is very good for the offer, and thanks to a no-show, we were able to stay in a private room instead of dorm. Sharon was so welcoming and nice, the breakfast includes everything you need to bake pancakes and eggs, it's well located, there's a big TV and pool table, and you can... More

I spent five weeks at the Newman house hostel and I absolutely recommend this place. Sharon, the host, is warm, helpful and I loved her cooking. You want to try her smoothies and pancakes in the morning. The hostel is clean and well organized. Everything you need when you are traveling or looking for a long term stay works well :... More

Called 2 weeks before my stay to reserve a room. Spoke with owner on the phone and she said she would prepare a private suite for us. Arrived to find the hostel over booked and were asked to find another place to stay. Owner had forgotten our reservation! Lobby also smelled strongly of ammonia. Cat was in the property if... More

Thanks for your comments It was definitely my error!! I gave that double room to the wrong guest- a single man who had gone out exploring. There was time to switch the rooms, would have had to wait but I got flustered. This young man offered to go elsewhere in a pleasant tone after I offered beds/ the dorm room... More

good location, good facilities and friendly owner! see you next time Sharon! oops, has to be 200 characters - so I'm borrowing other review statements "Sharon, the owner, is extremely helpful and hospitable. Sharon is also very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and can point out great tourist attractions and restaurants. " :-)

Sharon, the owner, is extremely helpful and hospitable. She goes the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible. She was able to find me an extra bed, even though the place was completely booked.

Spent a night here travelling with my girlfriend. Lots of rooms and friendly people. Sharon, the owner, is a wonderful host and has lots of food for cooking breakfast. Very social atmosphere with people hanging out, playing pool and talking on the deck. Next time I'm in town, I'll be sure to stay here!

The owner is very friendly, cooked meals and offered car rides. This is a house and the amenities are more like a b&b than a hostel; large bathroom, kitchen, and living room plus wifi and pool table. Call ahead before you arrive.
