Very clean and comfortable. Great location and the staff were fantastic. So helpful and very friendly. Rob the night security guy, was really lovely and introduced himself to all the guests in the lounge before night time and really made you feel welcome. Would definitely recommend

This hostel is almost perfect - gorgeous building, central location, helpful staff,lovely clientele, very clean. I would have liked a shadier deck, and, dare I suggest it as I have never seen it at a hostel, and if i ever hear of one that does it, i will immediately visit ... composting of food scraps. The client group who visit... More

The staff are also super friendly and helpful. The place has lots of space or places to relax both indoors and outdoors. There is lots to do and they have a really well... More

This hostel is excellent. The location couldn't be better, right in the city center, near various supermarkets, restaurants and bars. The facilities are very good, with a very big and well equiped kitchen and the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and comfortable. Although there are only 2 small parking lots, it is not difficult to park near the hostel.

Went to many YHAs before, but this one is definitely one of the most enjoyable eventhough we were staying at dormitory to safe some money. Loved the communal area, well equiped kitchen, very nice atmophere. Hepful staff, especially night guy was so nice. Supermarkets nearby are very convenient.

We loved staying in a private room with a shared bathroom. The staff were helpful and the communal cooking area is the cleanest I've seen in a hostel! There is a big communal area to eat, read and socialise. The location was good, a short walk from the Main Street.

The hostel is very clean, but the staff couldn't convince us. They were not too friendly and they didn't tell us at all, we had to ask everything ourself. They forgot to give us the bed sheets so we had to ask the night manager because the reception always closed earlier than the advertised 8 pm. Ok it was christmas... More

This was the first YHA we stayed in of many on our 11 week tour and it was by far our favourite. It's very clean, spacious (especially the lounge and kitchen). The best thing about it is Rob! He is the night manager and just made us feel so at home and comfortable. We were just at the start of... More

Hi Thanks for alerting us to this - the issue is with our tech support and the internet provider company as we want all our guests to be able to access the free Wifi hotspot - irrespective of what device they are on. That shouldn't matter! So we are onto it and will get this fixed up. Hope you enjoy... More
