          The hostel doesn't have bunk beds which is nice and every room is equipped with a heater. The kitchen is big and clean and well kitted out with everything. There is free wifi in the reception area. You also get cheaper drinks in the bar...More

          The hostel/lodge is quite large and so the fairly well equipped kitchen and the other amenities (bathrooms and laundry) are a bit of a distance from the room. Which isn't a huge deal. The bonus was paying for a dorm room ($35 per bed per...More
