Rooms, bathrooms (we provide shared bathrooms, two bathrooms per floor with hot and cold water) and common areas are professionally cleaned daily. All for an affordable budget backpacker price. Friendly staff will welcome you with a warm smile and assist you with any questions. Do you need some insider information about what is going on in town or are you looking for work? - Don't be afraid to ask the reception! We provide guests with great common areas including our famous rooftop terrace - a wonderful place to socialize or relax. Ample Street parking nearby. We specialize in group bookings of all sizes.
