This hostel is not very welcoming at all! When checking in we were greeted with someone who looked as if she didn't care at all, we were shown round briefly and hurried along which made us feel un welcome from the start! Our room was OK, there were a lot of bugs on the bed which was particularly very nice!... More

Upon arrival when I was ready to pay I didn't know that the rate I saw was with the BBH card, which we didn't have. The owner was kind enough and charged us the lower rate anyway, so I thank the hostel for the kindness. Our little double room was comfortable enough and the outside garden had an amazing view....

This is budget. So can't expect too much. We got a double super room. Ok and fairly clean but noisey coz near common room with lots of young people drinking till late.Won't stay again unless hard up for money. The rooms inside house smelt funny so lucky we didn't stay in there.

Worst hostel I ever been, looks like a beehive, the staff are terrible and arrogant, rooms are small dirty and smelly, the kitchen is small any they never wash the dishes. Honestly I've been in many bad backpackers but this is more the bad is disgusting

This hostel had the cosiest and most 'home-like' bedding of anywhere that we've stayed with big pillows and a fluffy comfortable duvet. The room was basic, but clean, with enough space to put our things. We were in one of the first rooms in the corridor from reception, so we had a short outdoor walk to get to the bathrooms... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in one of the double rooms. The room was huge with beautiful views, the bathroom was right next to our room, so it felt like we were renting our own cottage. The location is a little out the way of the town center but only a 10 minute walk and you're... More

5 minute walk to town, but a bit longer getting back due to the hill. Fantastic views over the wharf and beach areas. Super friendly hosts who go out of their way to make you welcome. Appears there are a number of long-term guests staying as well. Kitchen and common room are both awesome.Most definitely will stay here again. Bookings... More
