This is one of the best hostels we have stayed in since traveling Europe for the past 3 months! The staff is fantastic- very friendly and pointed us in the right direction for all the best foot trails, restaurants, and activities. The hostel was very clean with nice showers and toilets. The hostel is very close to the train station... More

I've rarely stayed in a hostel, normally I camp (in my van), but this time I needed a real rest and so I could be lazy and kip in the daytime so decided to stay in a building, one I could afford. I thought I was really too old (being over 80) but the staff especially Ryan (the boss) were... More

By far the cleanest hostel we have stayed at in the last 3 months travelling around Europe. Ryan and the crew were all very friendly and helpful (thanks for the hot toddie recipe!). Felt very welcome there, the hostel has a great vibe. Fantastic stocked kitchen, sharp knives, gladwrap, spices and even cake pans! (Its the little things!) Two pillows... More

Staff were pleasant to deal with. Free tea and coffee was well used by me. This backpackers hostel was useable, but I was not impressed by the overall untidyness of the hotel and its surroundings. Bed was clean and comfortable. Toilets and showers were too small and now dated. The drying room was cluttered with junk, as was the bike... More

I have been here for three nights and what is my surprise today when I came back to the hostel. I had been moved to a new room but it was not only me moved, my stuff had also been moved without permission. I asked the Australian manager if he was allowed to do that and he answered to me:... More

We walked in and got a room here on short notice, Ryan is a great help with lots of tips on what to see and do, we changed our itinerary the next day based on his advice and were not disappointed. The rooms were nice, it was not full so we were lucky to have a 4 bed dorm to... More

My friends booked this as a stop over. They shared a twin room and I got a double. Although the place looks and feels old, it has been made to feel a bit funky with some cool bed covers and wallpapers. I think it is mainly aimed at the younger type of traveller. Check in was easy and there is... More
