Spent 2 months there as I was working up the Remarks for the season, and had a great time ! Small backpacker for the ones who don't like the big places where you're just another face amongst the others. Really good wifi, free breakfast and good vibes, have to try it Bro' ;)

We stayed at the hostel for 4 nights and had a great time. The two Irish managers know their way around town. The hostel feels homely as it is not a party place and has limited beds. The dorm was clean and they offered free towels. I can only recommend the place. One of the best hostels I've stayed in... More

My stay here was awesome, the hostel is located just on the outskirts of the downtown and it has a much more relaxed vibe. One of the owners also has a dog which is usually hanging out in the commons area which was really cool. The kitchen and common area were great - plenty of movies. The beds were very... More

Well, this place is hard to describe. To start, when I arrived, for sure I had the worst welcome at all of my hostels experiences ever! The receptionist was in a very bad mood and was rude when I asked about the breakfest and wifi, she said that she would tell me everything in the right time. And then she... More

A great small hostel, it was clean and cosy when i arrived the receptionist Kate was ultra friendly and super organised; its close to the town centre but set back off the road over a little bridge with a garden. Good wi-fi free!

Be careful to the receptionist girl, she acts like a roboto and doesn't know the good behavior you need in the hospitality industry. The services are good, the bagpackers is quiet, too bad you employed poeple who do such a bad advertising.

There's a woman who (I think) owns this place, but when I stayed there she was the unfriendliest receptionist I have ever come across! She's extremely miserable. The room's were average, my room mates however were awesome but the hostel itself was just terrible. Would not go back.

To get to the rooms you first have to cross the front garden with a tiny bridge, then go upstairs were the reception and living room & kitchen are with all your bags and then go downstairs again to your room, and there is no way to go to the rooms without crossing the whole hostels and its many stairs!...

Chose it because I wanted a cosy, small hostel. It was small. And the bed was nicely made up, with 2 pillows. Beds looked great but the mattress had a hole in the middle from all the travellers that slept in it before. Only 2 showers for the whole hostel. Second one right next to reception was really grubby... Door... More
