Haven't stayed in a hostel for about 20 years! Stayed here with our three children as didn't want them to always think life was about nice hotels at the expense of the bank of Mum & Dad! Great location, super clean, friendly staff and would highly recommend staying here, we booked a dorm for 6 people with our own bathroom.... More
