I stayed at Pinedale with a friend and we both feel in love with the place and didn't want to leave. It is a small hostel with only a few bedrooms but has a huge communal space with two open fires, a long dining table, book exchange, pool table and the infamous love pit! While we were staying at Pinedale everyone hung out together in their free time and there was a really friendly, sociable atmosphere, without being too loud or people partying all night long. The owners are incredibly helpful and friendly and make you feel right at home. The hostel was very clean, showers absolutely spotless (I didn't even need to wear my flip flops!!) and the kitchen has everything you need. It is a few dollars more expensive than the average hostel but is worth every cent -you really do get what you pay for with hostels and the clean rooms and great facilities are really worth spending a tiny bit more on. I loved the homely, relaxed and friendly feel of the hostel and it is definitely one of my favourite hostels EVER!
