          Stayed as part of a tour group. Very friendly atmosphere in this quirky hostel. Rooms were spacious, had a comfortable sleep, the showers worked well. Good kitchen and choice of facilities. Close to everything you want to get to.

          Booked 2 dorm beds last minute. Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean rooms, kitchen and living area, bathrooms. Great price for one night stay, including breakfast (toast and cereals) and hot drinks! Mattress a little on the thin side, but can't complain for the price!
